A High School Sophomore Was Paddled By the Vice Principal For Cheating
Taylor Santos is a sophomore at Springtown High School in Springtown, Texas. Last week, she was caught letting another student cheat off her. So the school gave her an option: A two-day suspension . . . or a PADDLING.
Both Taylor AND HER MOTHER chose paddling. So the vice principal paddled her.
But now Taylor's family is upset. NOT over the paddling . . . but over the fact that the vice principal was MALE, and school policy is that females paddle females. Taylor is covered in bruises, but the outrage here is that a MAN caused them.
So how did the school board react? NOT by firing the vice principal. And NOT by banning corporal punishment and paddlings in general. No, their response is . . . we should get rid of that same-sex policy so men CAN paddle female students.
Taylor and her mother plan to go to the school board meeting to fight that potential policy change. I NEVER say this . . . but wouldn't it just be easier to file a lawsuit?
