U.S. Schools must Honor Sandy Hook victims by Abolishing Corporal Punishment, Stop Hitting Schoolchildren! Sad how NONE of the Media coverage includes the Fact that at the Groundbreaking Senate Hearing to End School-to-Prison Pipeline held 12/12/12 ACLU recommended enacting Federal Bill H.R. 3027 "The Ending Corporal Punishment in Schools Act", already Illegal in Schools in 31 U.S. States and Prohibited by Federal Law for use against convicted Felons in ALL U.S. Prisons, Cost $0! 19 U.S. States legally allow schoolchildren Kindergarten through Twelfth grade to be beaten with thick wooden paddles to inflict Pain as Punishment for minor infractions with No Safety standards to protect children from excessive force injuries or to prevent sadistic pedophiles from filming and sharing their perverse pleasure! See brutally violent injuries to schoolchildren from U.S. Public School "Paddling/Corporal Punishment" at YouTube Video trailer for Documentary Movie "The Board of Education" by Jared Abrams . Search "A Violent Education" 2008 Study by Human Rights Watch and ACLU for disturbing facts! dont hit students dot com Corporal Punishment is not good for children it leaves many injured, degraded and disengaged from school, it must raise blood pressure of school employees, it puts taxpayer funds at risk of lawsuits like the Half a Million Dollar lawsuit recently filed against Cumberland County, TN schools because a coac paddled a student who was on "No Paddle" list due to previous head injury and could have died from further injury to his spine. Why doesn't ayone want to acknowledge the ugly Truth that adults entrusted with our children's safety in school must terrify our children with even the threat of vioence? How on earth do schools in 31 U.S. states that have outlawed Corporal Punishment of children operate everyday?
