Our Mission:

To create national awareness of:

  • The practice of "legalized pupil-beatings" that still occur in public schools of 19 US states and territories, resulting in this practice remaining "legalized" in schools that are residential, charter and private of more than 40 US states (such as Ohio).

  • The widespread use of sanctioned harmful "seclusions and restraints" combined with the use of other forms of "school corporal punishment" (euphemism for "pain-based behavior management"), faced by sons and daughters throughout the USA in pre-school through high school diploma bound programs.

  • To disseminate information on harm that is caused to "developing human beings" through the use of "pain-based behavior management" and its adverse short and long-term effects on local and global society.

    To call on US Chief Enforcer of Law, President Donald Trump and Betsy DeVos, US State Secretary of Education, to take responsible action to have "Ending Corporal Punishment in Schools Act," HR 160, passed into federal law during the 115th Congress (Jan 2017-Jan 2019), in accordance with their sworn "oath of office" (crafted by former New York Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy; reintroduced its fifth time, January 2017, by Florida Congressman Alcee Hastings).

    [Violations of amendments 14, 13, 8, 4 and the Supreme Clause (article vi, par. 2) of the US Constitution occur, when pre-school through high school diploma bound students become targets of "pain-based behavior management" at the hands of school authorities. Fathers and mothers are subject to being prosecuted in a court of law when they administer like "training" measures upon their own sons and daughters (US Constitution, the Supreme "Law of the Land":

    To empower parents, educators and other child-caregivers with "positive discipline" models for training under 18-year-olds that are already proven effective in "top-performing" USA schools where the use of "pain-based behavior management" is prohibited and frowned upon.

    To raise awareness on "policies" exercised by Child Protective Services (CPS) and the impact they have on families in America and abroad.

    The Hitting Stops Here! continues to be a "non-501 c-3" organization.

    "As Edmund Burke put it, 'The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.' Without recognizing the consequences of their actions, most of the clergy have acquiesced to the government, by state incorporation and the 501 c-3, permitting their churches to be legally relegated to a place where they and their congregations can "do nothing" but mind their government masters."(...MORE)

    A Violent Education: Corporal Punishment of Children in US Public Schools,
    Prepared by: Alice Farmer, 2008 ACLU Report

    The US government is empowered to significantly decrease "legalized assault and battery" committed by educators against school age sons and daughters left in their care, when they employ the US Constitution. Primary targets to face this ill-treatment are sons and daughters of color, low-income, and having "special" needs. A mishandled child is subject to being "left behind"! Why are school authorities sanctioned to commit "assault and battery" against school age sons and long as the offense occurs on US school property--public, private and charter?

    Lizzy gets paddled at school

    Were Elizabeth your 16-year-old daughter, would you have a problem with this?

    Does it make you feel better knowing that it happened in the principal's office rather than in a motel room?
