close Video Georgia school brings back paddling as punishment Fox & Trends with Carley Shimkus. Parents of students attending the Georgia School for Innovation and the Classics received a surprising addition to the new school year stack of paperwork: the public charter school in Hephzibah, Georgia, solicited permission from parents to reinstate corporal punishment by asking them to fill out a “consent to paddle form.” School Superintendent Jody Boulineau said parents at the school, which serves students from kindergarten through ninth grade, are not required to give consent, WRDW-TV in Augusta, Georgia reported. The station reported on its website that “If parents opt out of paddling, they have to agree to up to 5 days of suspension” as an alternate punishment for misbehaving students.

Paddling students is now a disciplinary policy at a Georgia charter school and parents who don't consent have to agree to up to five days of suspension for their children instead. WRDW-TV reports the Georgia School for Innovation and the Classics sent parents a letter last week asking permission to hit children with a wooden paddle. Superintendent Jody Boulineau says the kindergarten through ninth grade school has received a little more than 100 of the forms back and a third of them give consent to use the paddle. Boulineau says the corporal punishment won't be used often, and just the threat of it will be a deterrent.
