Texas school district approves paddling as punishment

THREE RIVERS, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) - A South Texas school district has overturned a previous policy and approved corporal punishment in schools, KHOU.com reports.

The Three Rivers Independent School District recently approved paddling as a disciplinary method, according to KHOU.com. Previously, the district had a policy preventing the use of corporal punishment.

A board of trustees approved the new method, which is expected to be implemented at the start of the upcoming school year.

KHOU.com reports that the new method would require the permission of parents before the campus behavior coordinator and/or principal could administer the punishment.

Currently in Region 2 there are 27 districts, including Three Rivers, that have policies allowing corporal punishment.
