End Corporal Punishment in Schools

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama

Petition Statement

We, the undersigned, want to end the practice of corporal punishment in America's schools.
There are currently 170 signatures. NEW goal - We need 200 signatures!

Petition Background

The efficacy of corporal punishment has shown to be minimal, at best. 19 states still allow paddling and other forms of physical punishment in school. In my state, each community sets its own policy; and in many communities schools are allowed to discipline the students with corporal punishment against the wishes of parents.
