Texas high school student Taylor Santos thought that she would be taking the easy way out of a school punishment when she decided to allow her vice principal to give her a spanking rather than serve another day of in-school suspension. The idea didn’t seem that bad to her until after the beating from the male vice principal left her with bruises and blisters.
Santos has excelled academically while attending Springtown High School for the last two years. Her troubles started one day when unbeknownst to her she says a classmate copied one of her homework assignments. The school decided to give both girls a two day in school suspension as punishment. Since corporal punishment is legal in the state of Texas, Taylor decided to take a spanking from a school administrator instead of the full two day suspension so she would not miss classes.
There are 19 states that still allow spanking in school. Texas is one of those states, but parents must give permission before school officials spank the children. Taylor’s mother Ann Jorgensen agreed to allow her daughter to be spanked but says that she was unaware that the vice principal would be doing the paddling. This was a direct violation of the school’s policy about students being paddled by administrators who are of the same sex.
When asked about the condition of her daughter’s butt after the beating Jorgensen said “It looked almost like it had been burned and blistered, it was so bad.”
The vice principal told Jorgensen that her daughter’s bruises were perfectly normal and that he was not aware of the school’s policy on same sex spanking.
Now I just have one question….What in the HELL is wrong with these people?!?! As a parent, there is no way in the world that I am going to let some administrator put their hands on my child. Don’t get me wrong, I am not opposed to spanking. But I am not going to run the risk of letting someone who I don’t even know willingly put their hands on my child..Nope…Not gonna happen!!!
What male in his right mind would even feel comfortable with spanking a teenage girl? I don’t get it…
And why in the hell is spanking only illegal in 31 states? States like North Carolina, Louisiana, Texas, Wyoming, and more all tried to outlaw spanking in recent years but the efforts were fruitless.
I can’t do much more than just SMH at this entire story…
