Well, this is a funny discussion coming through my mind when i think about my school days. Yes there were spanking punishment for boys till 10th std. School Principal will give three strokes on the bottom and it was painful. I were a victim for this punishment thrice during my school days.. Share your experience ! Cheers!

Many fond years ago when i was in grade school, the principal was allowed to spank you with a wooden paddle in the office. they did not even have to call your parents first. now your child can hardly be held in the principal's office. a spanking from them would be charges of abuse. Look how far we have come.

hi, actually i never had that kind of punishment and most of punishment i received was standing for whole day with holding books in my hand,because during that time punishing by hitting or spanking the child was a crime so teachers that time avoid to do that punishment.

Back in the day it was allowed, and there was no wondering about a Law suit, etc. and kids actually grew up for the most part to be Good parents. Now a days they are not allowed to touch a child even when they talk back, hit another child, etc. I think we were better off back in the day.

I was such a mischievous student before. I remembered when I was in grade school, my teacher spanked me for staying outside the room. We had visitors that time and I was the only one staying outside. We were warned not to go out but i went out. PAK! i deserved that spank. :)

I used to be brighter, so, i did not have it many times. In my schools, teacher liked Bamboo stick. Boy used to wear jeans and other clothes under their pants for minimizing the pain.

LOL! I could remember the days when teachers would threaten elementary students about this spanking punishment. It's actually funny now that I recall it. I've witnessed this punishment many times and I really didn't really have much knowledge back then to be against it, but when I've read the other responses I begun to realize that it's quite unjust. But I understand that teachers may resort to this when students are being too much of a hassle for them, hmm...some students are just too stubborn and troublesome that threats are quite called for. I've never been spanked in the humps though. ^^ I was one of the top students in my elementary so I tend to abide 'some' rules but there were times that I ignored those homeroom guidelines and joined the fun and mess in my classroom. I'm not that afraid for punishment in my late years in elementary and I did experienced to be hit in the palm, but it's not really painful because teachers tend to lessen the force when striking a girl. LOL! Life's unfair with the boys huh? :D

Before school spanking was outlawed here, they had to receive written permission from the parents. I was threatened with a spanking, but never got one because my dad wouldn't have it. He said he would come to that school and break their legs if they touched a hair on me. He thought a stranger might be too harsh since its not their own child who they are disciplining.

No thank goodness, I never witnessed this in my school. The only thing the teacher did back in grade school was she made us stand in the corner, usually until the end of class when were being noisy, or when we talked while the teacher was discussing. I was a regular since I was really talkative in school. But I've never been spanked or anything like that in school. Not all parents use physical pain or bodily harm to discipline their children, and besides, this form of discipline usually breeds rebellion in children if not done in the right way.

We did not have that during the time that I started school. Glad that we did not have that. I remember my mom telling me stories about people being spanked in schools and even some kids had to wear a dunce hat. I thought that that was wrong for schools to do that to humiliate people.
