Public School Spanking 1O1
Email Address:


Our Mission:

To create national awareness of:
  • sanctioned school beatings in 19 US states and territories.
  • the use of harmful seclusions and restraints and other forms of  “school corporal punishment” occurring throughout the US and territories.

  • To disseminate information on the harm “school corporal punishment” produces in children and society.

    To call on President Barack Obama to place an immediate moratorium or ban on all “school corporal punishment” throughout the US and its territories in public, private and charter schools by exercising his authority as Chief Executive Law Enforcer.  (US “school corporal punishment”was termed “legalized child abuse” by CA Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey, May 2009.)

    [Violations of the 14th, 13th, 8th and 4th amendments and the Supreme Clause (article vi, par. 2) of the US Constitution occur when an American school child, a US citizen, is subjected to “school corporal punishment” (pain-based behavior management).  Parents and animal owners are subject to being prosecuted for meting out like forms of punishment to their children or pets.]

    To empower parents and educators to use proven positive discipline models that are mutually respectful, producing independent thinkers, problem-solvers and leaders.

    [In US schools where the safety and well-being of children is important, teachers are trained to use 21st century models of discipline that are respectful, kind and effective. American school teachers who lack training in proven positive discipline methodologies are being "left behind," thus the children in their care are left behind too.]

    US Education Committee Chairman John Kline "surprise meeting" with The Hitting Stops Here!, June 15, 2016:

    Congressman John Kline is fully aware of current widespread and rampant "pupil-beatings" faced by American sons and daughters when left in the hands of unprofessional and even dangerous American educators.

    US federal "protective" legislation is currently available to ban the use of all forms of school corporal punishment (euphemism for "pain-based behavior management") entitled, "Ending Corporal Punishment in Schools Act," HR 2268.

    This bill will bring all school safety-levels up to "acceptable" or higher throughout continental America, the Nation of Hawaii and US territories --public, private and charter.

    Information on how to support the success of this legislation is posted daily. Click Facebook, left column at: Contact us:; 800.515.9216

    Widespread U S School Abuse and Fatalities

    Read the 2009 GAO/ACLU Reports

    The U S Govt can end all legalized assault and battery in American schools today but chooses to delay. Why? Because primary targets are Black Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, children with autism and other special needs, and low income families. The same groups that have always received the poorest representation in America. A paddled behind gets left behind. They know this. Why do they allow legalized assault and battery to take place with these populations?

    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?
