Call or email these Reps today and ask them to vote for Rep. Alma Allen’s HB 359 which will be voted on Friday, May 6 on the House floor.
HB 359 will abolish corporal punishment in Texas schools but allow parents to opt-in for their children. It is a big step forward for Texas and will virtually eliminate school padding.
School paddling is child abuse and it promotes more child abuse in Texas homes. Thirty one states have studied issue and put away paddles. Grown men hitting children as young as five is wrong and must be stopped. Some children are taken to the hospital after being paddled.
