Legislation Introduced – Ending Corporal Punishment in School Nationwide

New York Rep. Carolyn McCarthy introduced legislation on Tuesday, June 29, 2010, that would end corporal punishment in ALL American schools (HB 5628 “Ending Corporal Punishment in Schools Act”). Several caring and responsible congressional leaders have already taken immediate and necessary action in protecting our American School Children from the harmful and legal acts of beating them with wooden boards and leather straps, by sponsoring/cosponsoring this extremely important bill.
