Corporal Punishment in Schools

What do you think about this practice? I read an article today about it that was very upsetting. I want to do a piece on it but need a bit more time. In the interim - I would like to know what you think about paddling the butts of students. Sign in to see full entry.

AGE OF CREATIVITY?

I have been out of work before. In reading some of the posts here on blogit I know that others in this writing community are out of work now.

KINDLE 2 FROM AMAZON – No Break for KINDLE 1 Users

I’m sort of pissed off. I own a Kindle which I have had for less than a year. It was a birthday present from my husband.
