I definitely wouldn't have expected students
to be the ones to defend paddling at school, but that's exactly what happened at St. Augustine High School in New Orleans. The local archbishop says paddling doesn't belong at school and that he believes it "does not build character." But some St. Augustine students are arguing that paddling isn't just a form of discipline; it's a "form of life at St. Augustine" - and they point out that the school has produced successful men over the decades.
What is your stance on corporal punishment at school?
