Excerpt: School corporal punishment covers official punishments of school students for misbehaviour that involve striking the student a given number of times in a generally methodical and premeditated ceremony. The punishment is usually administered either across the buttocks or on the hands, with an implement specially kept for the purpose such as a rattan cane, wooden paddle, or leather strap. Less commonly, it could also include spanking or smacking the student in a deliberate manner on a specific part of the body with the open hand, especially at the elementary school level. Advocates of school corporal punishment argue that it provides an immediate response to indiscipline and that the student is quickly back in the classroom learning, rather than being suspended from school. Opponents believe that other disciplinary methods are equally or more effective. Some regard it as tantamount to violence or abuse. In most places, corporal punishment in public schools is governed by official regulations laid down by governments or local education authorities, defining such things as the implement to be used, the number of strokes that may be administered, which members of staff may carry it out, and whether parents must be informed or consulted. Depending on how narrowly the regulations are drawn and how rigorously enforced, this has the effect of making the punishment a structured ceremony that is legally defensible in a given jurisdiction and of inhibiting staff from lashing out on the spur of the moment....

A powerful history of student protests and student rights during the desegregation era In the late 1960s, protests led by students roiled high schools across the country. As school desegregation finally took place on a wide scale, students of color were particularly vocal in contesting the racial discrimination they saw in school policies and practices. And yet, these young people had no legal right to express dissent at school. It was not until 1969 that the Supreme Court would recognize the First Amendment rights of students in the landmark Tinker v. Des Moines case. A series of students’ rights lawsuits in the desegregation era challenged everything from school curricula to disciplinary policies. But in casting students as “troublemakers” or as “culturally deficient,” school authorities and other experts persuaded the courts to set limits on rights protections that made students of color disproportionately vulnerable to suspension and expulsion. Troublemakers traces the history of black and Chicano student protests from small-town Mississippi to metropolitan Denver and beyond, showcasing the stories of individual protesters and demonstrating how their actions contributed to the eventual recognition of the constitutional rights of all students. Offering a fresh interpretation of this pivotal era, Troublemakers shows that when black and Chicano teenagers challenged racial discrimination in American public schools, they helped remake American constitutional law and establish protections of free speech, due process, equal protection, and privacy for students.

School corporal punishment is currently legal in 19 states, and over 160,000 children in these states are subject to corporal punishment in schools each year. (Corporal Punishment in U.S. Public Schools: Prevalence, Disparities in Use, and Status in State and Federal Policy by Elizabeth T. Gershoff and Sarah A. Font)Our survey was begun in 2009 and continues through today. It is not a scientific survey, but is intended to give people an opportunity to respond to questions about their experiences. These are the questions that were asked in the survey:1.How old are you now?2.Are you male or female?3.What country did you grow up in?4.If you grew up in the United States, what states did you live in when you were going to school?5.Did you wear a uniform to school?6.Did you go to a public or private school?7.What grades were you spanked at school and what were you spanked with?8.Who spanked you at school?9.What was the gender of the person that spanked you?10.How were you positioned for the spanking?11.How soon after the offense were you spanked?12.Where were you spanked?13.How many swats were you given? If you received more than one spanking at school, please tell how many swats you received each time and what you were spanked with.14.If there was a witness present, who was it?15.If your parents were informed, how was that done?16.How was your spanking administered?17.If it was done on your bare bottom did you know it would be done that way?18.If it was done on your bare bottom, how were you told that it would be done that way?19.If you were spanked on your bare bottom, how were you prepared for that?20.Please take a moment and tell us about your most memorable school spanking and why you were punished.At the time of this writing, there were 585 responses. We have included charts documenting the answers provided. While many respondents didn't provide much information on Question 20, those responses that were interesting are included in this book, including their responses to all questions. Much of the data is not surprising. Most of the students receiving corporal punishment were males. Most of the students were from the southern United States. While public schools in the south still use corporal punishment, many states have outlawed it in public schools. Private religious schools seem to use it with more consistency and severity.Students in elementary school were usually spanked over the knee with the hand by the teacher, right after the offense. Older students were spanked in a more traditional manner with a paddle or cane, bending over. These were usually done by a principal or headmaster, often after school.Witnesses were often present, but not always, and to our surprise, parents weren't always informed. We were very surprised that a number of respondents claimed that corporal punishment was administered to their bare bottoms.

The United States is not meeting its obligations under the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, a treaty the US ratified in 1994. This report, issued on the eve of international review of US compliance with the treaty, documents areas win which the US is falling short of its obligations. It focuses on areas that have been the subject of prior Human Rights Watch research, supplementing the analyses offered by other groups monitoring US performance under the treaty. Subjects detailed here include the failure of federal authorities to inform individual states of their obligations under the treaty, the discriminatory treatment of Haitian refugees by the US, and policies that have the effect of denying health care to many African-Americans with HIV/AIDS. In addition, the report presents new data collected by Human Rights Watch demonstrating that racial disparities in the sentencing of children to life in prison without possibility of parole are more pronounced than the US has acknowledged to date. The report concludes with recommendations of concrete steps US authorities should take to bring the US more fully into compliance with its obligation--P.  of cover.
