A school district in Texas approved a measure that would allow paddling as a form of punishment starting in the upcoming academic year.

A paddle, expected to be wood, will be used to administer the corporal punishment.

“If the parent is not comfortable with it, that’s the end of the discussion,” said the school district’s superintendent Mary Springs.

Corporal punishment is defined by the Texas Classroom Teachers Association (TCTA) as “deliberate infliction of physical pain by hitting, paddling, spanking, slapping or any other physical force used as a means of discipline.”

A 1977 Supreme Court case, Ingraham v. Wright, found that paddling in schools does not violate students’ rights,. Specifically the Eighth Amendment’s “cruel and unusual punishment” clause and the Fourteenth Amendment’s right to due process.
