I'll let you watch this first: Linky Ok, first of all, I don't understand anything about why any of this would be allowed. - school allows corporal punishment. - frail, petite 16, year-old girl would choose this over detention rather than accepting or (in this case, because she did nothing wrong) fighting detection. Her mom (at first) supporting it. - That a male teacher would be the one doing it. - Once bad vibes hit about this, the school continues to ALLOW corporal punishment, this time with necessary consent for all aspects. They lost me at point one. I didn't know corporal punishment was allowed in this day and age.. it seems like everyone involved in this needs to have their head examined!
