When I was in elementary school back in the 50’s if a child was caught chewing gum in class a teacher could make them put it on the end of their nose and stand in the back of the classroom. As far as hitting a child, not for 60 years has that been permitted in the civilized world! What happened to being sent to the principle’s office and then sent home for a parent to discipline their child. What about in school suspension for disturbing the class?
