  • Thank You Sheppard Alann Stutts for being a VOICE FOR STUDENTS, vulnerable and defenseless and the only group of people legally subjected to Corporal Punishment, akin to allowing local communities to legally allow Slavery, and Exposing the Truth about Pain as Punishment legal in a small minority of US Schools due to Political Indifference to Children's Constitutional Rights to be treated with Human Dignity and Respect and have Equal access to safe and healthy learning environments in taxpayer funded schools!

    See the Ugly truth about School Corporal Punishment, shocking injuries to students Kindergarten through Twelfth grade YouTube video 'The Board of Education' by Jared Abrams at School employees are Immune from criminal/civil charges leaving no legal remedy! Some State Laws, including Florida and Tennessee, do Not require parental consent or notification to inflict Pain as Punishment in school, yet it is Illegal in Schools in Nashville and 31 U.S. States! Spanking can be sexual abuse

    Watch short YouTube Video of Montel Williams, 2007 Supreme Court of The United States complicit in child abuse/beatings of minor schoolchildren no legal remedy

    U.S. Organizations Opposed to Corporal Punishment in Schools

    School Spanking, known as Corporal Punishment, is discriminatorily applied to boys, minority, disabled and low-income students.

    US Politicization of Childrens Rights by predominantly southern 'Bible Belt' states inflicting Corporal Punishment on students in Public Schools setting students up to become future abusers and victims of domestic violence along with a host of other costly societal ills. Church and State co exist in US Public Schools, Spare the Rod, Spoil the Child!
