LINCOLN CONSOILDATED SCHOOLS (ARKANSAS) Are middle principal Michele Price and dean of students Charles Morton monsters? Chadie Chancy was paddled by a grown man, Charles Morton.  My mama told me not to hit girls. A grown man paddling a young girl sounds perverted, put you hands on the desk, bend your knees, so I can get a good look at your butt.  He hit her so hard he left massive bruising on her butt. Morton showed no remorse. The school board made up of a bunch of cowards was indifferent to Caddie’s injuries. Worst of all, the school board and the middle school staff have no concern for the welfare of Chadie.

Read this story as reported by Nina Criscuolo.

Being the new kid in school can come with challenges. Less than two weeks
into her sixth grade year 12-year-old Chadie Chancy got into a fight.
Rather than three days suspension – she chose three swats.

According to the police report, Chadie was taken into an office with
principal Michele Price and dean of students Charles Morton. Morton told
her to put her hands on the desk and bend her knees. Chadie says after the
first swat she regretted choosing the punishment saying to Morton, “Please
stop, I would rather go to the box, I wanted to go back to I.S.S. and then
they said you have two more, lets get them done.”

The box, or I.S.S., is in school suspension – but because that was no
longer an option Chadie says she turned around and put her hands back on
the desk.

The swats happened here at Lincoln Middle School and while the
superintendent, principal, and Mr. Morton declined to talk about the
incident on camera their statements in this police report give a unique
perspective on what happened that day.

Principal Michele Price says Chadie did ask to stop because of the pain
and was crying. While Morton believe he gave the swats fairly “without any anger or aggression”. But according to the police report Chadie left school bruised and bleeding.

Chadie’s parents Cindi and Chris were shocked when they saw the marks left
on Chadie’s body. Cindi says, “I did authorize three swats but I did not
authorize a beating.”

According to the Department of Human Services, physical discipline should
not cause injury more serious than minor temporary marks. Chadie’s parents
say photos taken five days after the punishment still show bruising from
the swats.

The Lincoln P. D. incident report lists Charles Morton as a suspect for
third degree battery. But prosecutors decided not to move forward with the
charges, a move that does not shock Stephanie Smith with the Social
Services Division at Northwest Arkansas Community College.

Smith does not agree with Chadie’s punishment and believes corporal
punishment can be harmful, humiliating, and even confusing for children.

“If an adult hits an adult we charge it as a crime, if a kid hits a kid we
punish the child somehow regardless of how that is, so why is it ok for an
adult to hit a kid, it’s doesn’t make sense,” says Smith.

And it doesn’t make sense to the Chancy’s, who are continuing to search
for answers. Last Monday, the Chancy’s stood before the school board only to be turned
away.

Chris says, “I feel like the system quit somewhere along the way and you
know there’s still loop holes.”

Lincoln school officials say they are looking into the matter… And while
they do Charles Morton will continue to act as dean of students.
But after more than two months of waiting for the process to produce
results, the Chancy’s say their 12-year-old is still trying to overcome
emotional wounds.

TEACHERS WHO PADDLE KICK THE BUCKET ON WORD-PRESS

It seems as though Teachers who paddle feel like they’ve won. Let me let
you four and everyone know that this battle is not over. Since so called,
intelligent adults will not address the safety needs of school children,
we will take our message to students and empower them that they have the
right to say, “No!” to sanction assault and battery and sexual abuse.

A New Direction:

With Teachers who paddle dropping out of the fight, we’re going to still
be here with or without them. With that, we are going to turn our
attention to actual teachers who do paddle even more and expose them for
the bullies they are. Don’t get me wrong, the blog Teachers who paddle, will still be reference heavily on this blog.

Coward Power!

It seems as though Teachers who paddle can not come up with the answers to
the questions I asked last time we posted and didn’t even address my proposal for a formal debate to be posted on YouTube. Since Teachers who
paddle has decided to drop out, these questions are still open for anyone
to answer. Maybe you want to give it a shot, Prof. N?

Challenge To American Way:

Mr. American way, we want to debate you on blog radio or in front of TV
cameras and put it on YouTube. Paula Flowed now has access to TV cameras.
You are acting like a coward. If you got an argument, why can’t you
verbally debate with us? When a debate takes place, the debaters are
supposed to meet face to face, like Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas
did.  I don’t think you can handle people who disagree with you on this
issue.

A DEBATE OVER DISCIPLINE FOR SMOKING ON CAMPUS

I went to two schools in Alabama—Mobile County public schools, which is
the biggest school district in the state, and Dothan City public schools.
The two districts had different ways of handling smoking violations in the 70’s.

In Dothan, it was an automatic three day suspension. In Mobile, it was three
swats on the butt with a paddle.  A friend of mine in Dothan got caught
smoking in the boy’s room.  He was suspended for three days and fell into
the angry hands of his parents. They didn’t know he was sneaking around
smoking.  He was severely disciplined. They didn’t spank him. He was too
old to spank.  Dothan, Alabama schools had very little problem with kids
lighting up cigarettes.

In Mobile schools it was the opposite. The school was overloaded with kids smoking on campus. Things have changed in Mobile since my years of going to W.P. Davidson. About ten years ago, the school district banned corporal punishment, after debating over it for twenty years.

When I was a student there, kids were lighting up everywhere you turned. In between classes, many kids would gather in the restrooms and outside to light up. Kids were constantly being caught.  I knew scores of kids who were caught smoking. Most of them would laugh about it and would say something like this. “The principal got his jollies off. He told me to put my hands on my knee so he could get a good look at my butt, and he spanked me with a paddle three times.”

Girls were part of this naughtiness too. Walk out one of the east doors between classes back then, and you could find as many girls lighting up  as you would guys. When girls got caught, I can still hear the words of my old
cronies. “The principal really got his jollies off—he got to spank a
girl.” Half the girls were all giggly about. Some it affected them
emotionally. But here’s the bottom line. Boy or girl– it didn’t matter,
even girls who got emotional about being swatted, the next day they were
lighting up again on campus. Paddling kids for smoking didn’t deter any of
us teen smokers. Not once did I ever hear of one of those three goof-ball
principals we had in our high school, calling and telling a parent. If a
teenager is caught smoking on campus, the first course of action should be
to notify the parents.

I was part of the gang back then. I was a bad boy in high school. I lit up
as much as the next guy did on school campus. I did get caught one time,
but I lucked out and didn’t get beaten. I was in the boy’s room puffing
away–when a teacher walked in wearing goofy-looking wire rim glasses.  He
escorted me to the principal’s office. We walked inside the front part of
the office, the receptionist area. He wrote me up. Two secretaries were
behind the front counter. Both had their backs turned, talking on the
phone. Wire-rims handed me the slip of paper he had written on and said.
“Hand this to one of the secretaries, and she’ll give it to the
principals.” He turned around and left the office. When he was out of
sight, I left the office. I had about a hundred feet to go. I shifted from
first to fifth gear and ran as hard as I could. As soon as I had both of
my feet planted inside the classroom, the tardy bell rang.

The high school I went to had over 1800 students. I never saw wire-rims
again. You folks who are regular visitors to this strange Network
54—School Corporal Punishment, tell me who was right back in 1970’s?
Which school district handled smoking violations properly—-Dothan City
Schools or Mobile County Schools? You people on this Network 54 think you
have all the answers to school discipline problems, even without citing
evidence to support your claim and the evidence you cite, if any, holds n0
merit whatsoever. Here’s another one for you. How is it in the best
schools in America don’t use corporal punishment and the worst do? You do
not need corporal punishment to have a good school.

PARODY OF A LETTER TO THE US CONGRESS: What else Teachers who paddle may support?

Since they wrote a letter to the US congress, I thought of examining it to
expose their flawed reason for keeping sanctioned sexual abuse on the
books. This parity will hope to answer Prof. N’s excuse that it’s what the
community wants.

Note: Wade and I do not support the contents in this letter. This letter
seeks to show the silly reasons for keeping buttocks battering on the
books can also be used to support this. Also, since Teachers who paddle
believe in this philosophy, it makes me scratch my head in wonder if they
support this activity as well.

Dear: (Your Representative/Senator’s name)
As a registered voter and civic-minded citizen, I am troubled by the
Federal insertion into the governance of (private citizen’s homes.)
Reasonable people can debate the proper roles of Federal, State and Local
governments but U.S. History is clear on one thing:  (Slavery issues) is
governed from the bottom up and not top down. Our founding forefathers
(never spoke about slavery and the most blatant thing is that the United
State’s Constitution and Bill of Rights never talks about slavery
(pre-civil war era). This was due to the fact that they felt that bringing
up slavery would tear the young nation apart because their was question
who had more power, the states or the union.) Despite some Federal
involvement in (slavery) (Not all bad (to keep fairness between slave and
free states. This is just to give what those darn anti-slavery zealots
what they want)), the U.S. (slavery institution) has been a
“decentralized” one (and will of the community).
But recently, a (Senator John B Henderson) of (Missouri) has proposed an
abolition of all (slavery.) The first question I ask is “What business
does the Federal government have deciding the (way private homes and
private plantations are runned) who, for the most part, (aid our nation
make trade materials for cheap?” Slavery aids our economy and is a
practice embraced by the community.) Second question is “What do U.S.
Senators and Representatives know about running plantations?” Third
question is “With all the problems facing our nation currently and the
general public’s discontent, why would the U.S. Congress ever waste time
on an issue for which it has NO competency to address?”
I understand that this is a very difficult issue for some but Washington,
D.C. is not the proper place to resolve this. With unemployment at record
highs, banking scandals, immigration reform etc., Capital Hill has all it
can handle! The American people send YOU to our nation’s capital to do the
nation’s business. But our (private homes and private plantations) are NOT
and NEVER will be run out of Washington -Bet on it!
As to the issue of (slavery,) in no way does this letter condone or
sanction the abuse of (slaves.) But, with (proper slave conditions), the
concept of (slavery) has guided our (private homes and private
plantations) for over 230 years (and slavery has lasted even longer.
Slavery has lasted since mankind has ever been on this Earth.) Different
states and locals have various (attitudes on slavery) but none have ever
been banned by Federal law (till the anti-slavery zealots had there way.)
Why should we centralize (the way our private homes and private
plantations) to Washington? Because a few hard-line zealots demand it?
Where abuse occurs, it should be dealt with in the (private setting
between slave and master) but a few swats, (given to a slave on the
plantation to pick more cotton or to punish  a slave for willful
disobedience, with a wooden board) is NOT abuse (The same wooden board to beat our American school children and even adult students.) And as to
(slave owners,) (there are abusive and non-abusive slave masters who treat
their slaves like their workers and with respect.)
With all of the problems facing our nation at this time, this is one issue
you need to “take a pass on”. Just remember: I do vote and will “remember
in November” when election time comes.

ONLY SUITABLE FOR MINORS? By Mino.

School children’s “spanking” related injuries (WARNING – These images may
be deeply  disturbing to some viewers. Do not open this page if children
are present).

.
(WARNING – This sound recording may be deeply disturbing to some listeners. Do not open this file if children are within listening range).

People used to think it was necessary to “spank” adult members of  the
community, college students, military trainees, and prisoners. In some
countries they still do. In our country, it is considered sexual battery
if a  person over the age of 18 is “spanked”, but only if over the age of
18.
(Editor’s Note: Mino we are thankful for your input but this is not always the case.  Please Google Jessica Serafin to learn more what happen to this “18 year old.” For a little background, Jessica left campus to get food, when she got back, she was notified that she was going to be beaten, but she refused the beating. Since the principal wanted some buttocks to spank (probably wanting to add to his porn collection and probably sell it to spanking fetish websites. Reason why? Principals are legally able to video tape paddlings without anyone’s knowledge) he summoned two adults to hold her down while the principal figuratively, sexually assaulted her. Teachers who paddle has not address this case or any of the cases I gave them that threaten the use of their favorite slave tool, the paddle.)

For one thing, because the buttocks are so close to the sex organs, anal
region, and so multiply linked to sexual nerve centers, striking them can
trigger powerful and involuntary sexual stimulus in some people. There are
numerous physiological ways in which it can be intentionally or
unintentionally sexually abusive, but I won’t list them all here. One can
read the testimony, documentation, and educational resources available
from  the website of Parents and Teachers Against Violence In Education

Child bottom-battering vs. DISCIPLINE:

Child bottom-battering (euphemistically labeled
“spanking”,”swatting”,”switching”,”smacking”,  “paddling”,or other
cute-sounding names) for the purpose of gaining  compliance is nothing
more than an inherited bad habit.

It’s a good idea for people to take a look at what they are doing, and
learn how to DISCIPLINE instead of hit.

There are several reasons why child bottom-battering isn’t a good idea.
Here are some good, quick reads recommended by professionals:

NO VITAL ORGANS THERE, So They Say
by Lesli Taylor MD and Adah Maurer PhD
http://nospank.net/taylor.htm

Just a handful of those helping to raise awareness of why child
bottom-slapping/battering isn’t a good idea:

American Academy of Pediatrics,
American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry,
American Psychological Association,
Center For Effective Discipline,
Churches’ Network For Non-Violence,
Nobel Peace Prize recipient Archbishop Desmond Tutu,
Parenting In Jesus’ Footsteps,
Global Initiative To End All Corporal Punishment of Children,
United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child.

In 26 countries, child corporal punishment is prohibited by law (with more
in process). In fact, the US was the only UN member that did not ratify
the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

The US states with the highest crime rates and the poorest academic
performance are also the ones with the highest rates of child corporal
punishment.

There is simply no evidence to suggest that child bottom-battering
instills virtue.
