New school spanking policy considered in Cumberland Co.

New school spanking policy considered in Cumberland Co.

The Cumberland County Board of Education will vote on changes to their current corporal punishment policy Thursday night.

Currently, principals send paperwork home with students the first week of school concerning the policy.  Guardians must check "yes" or "no" on whether they approve of corporal punishment for their child, if actions warrant.

The new change would place full responsibility on parents.  Students would no longer carry the form home.
