Beating of the kids......

Con

It is not the schools' jobs to physically discipline students for wrongdoing. Under federal law, parents have the right to discipline their children how they want short of child abuse. Schools do not have that right.

No it's not in their job to discipline them but statistics show that 97.5% of the times they have to take up the role of the parents of where they have fallen short. Say your in a predicament where their is a fight what powers will the teachers have over the children, just to stand there and say stop it and try to path and if the child attacks you your defenseless.
But we don't believe in abuse and that is where we get mixed up, corporal punishment is supposed to discipline you for your wrong actions but it SHOULDN'T be abuse.

Con

Self-defense is different than corporal punishment. I'm arguing against the beating of kids as punishments. It's a different situation when you have a student attacking you.

Yes it is true self defense is different but sometimes you have to use corporal punishment on children because of their hard headed-ness.
Especially this day and age we live in there is more technology and less values at the homes so there teachers have a harder task teaching the children because they wont listening and that is why so many are quiting because the children wont obey comands and listen to what is being said, or what is being taught.

Con

Even if the kids aren't paying as much attention as they used to, it is still not justified for the teachers to use corporal punishment in schools. It is not their right to do so, only their parents. Schools are for educating, not punishing.
