Corporal punishment

When I think of the conversations we have on Twitter about the use of technology in education, I wonder why we don’t have this conversation more often; it is not okay to hit children, especially when those children are not your own (I don’t like this qualifier, but I recognize that parents have more rights than we do as teachers, whether or not I agree with what they do with those rights).

 

We need to get the places in red below to codify this in law ’cause for some reason, they haven’t yet.
