YOUR PEERS NEED YOUR VOICE. IT IS LEGAL IN 20 US STATES AND TERRITORIES FOR TEACHERS TO BEAT THEIR STUDENTS WITH WOODEN BOARDS ON THEIR BUTTOCKS AS A FORM OF DISCIPLINE. THESE BEATINGS OCCUR IN PRE-SCHOOL THROUGH SENIOR YEAR IN HIGH SCHOOL. A BILL WAS INTRODUCED JUNE 29, 2010 BY NY REP. CAROLYN MCCARTHY TO END THIS PRACTICE CALLED: “ENDING CORPORAL PUNISHMENT IN SCHOOLS ACT,” HR 5628. A TOTAL OF 25 VOTES ARE NEEDED FOR THIS BILL TO ADVANCE TO THE HOUSE FLOOR, TO THE SENATE AND TO THE DESK OF PRES. OBAMA FOR SIGNING INTO LAW. ON FRIDAY, OCTOBER 29, THE HITTING STOPS HERE! WILL HOLD A RALLY OUTSIDE OF THE TEXAS STATE CAPITOL BLDG. FROM 3PM-8PM TO FORCE MEDIA ATTENTION ON THIS ISSUE. WE INVITE HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS TO ATTEND. FREE TEE-SHIRTS WILL BE GIVEN. WE WILL PROVIDE FREE ROUND-TRIP TRANSPORTATION FOR ALL STUDENTS WHO PROVIDE A LETTER OF PERMISSION FROM THEIR PARENTS. DRIVERS ARE TOM JOHNSON AND MYSELF. BOTH DRIVERS ARE BOARD MEMBERS OF PARENTS AND TEACHERS AGAINST VIOLENCE IN EDUCATION. MR. JORDAN RIAK IS EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF THIS NONPROFIT ORGANIZATION.
