I’ll openly post that I think there is a big problem when an adult thinks it is appropriate to hit a person, especially a child to discipline her.
I read online that a male administrator had hit a 15-year-old female student: Taylor Santos at a school in Texas.
I’m going to call it what it is: assault and battery at the least and child abuse or at the worst.
I just feel disgusted.
It reminds me of the quote: Do as I say and not as I do.
Does this school or community encourage an environment where people hit each other to discourage a behavior?
Would it be appropriate for the superintendent to hit a principal for misconduct? Would a principal hit a teacher for misconduct? Could a police officer in this town administer a hit to a person who violates a crime? I think not in all of these cases. Why would it ever be appropriate to hit a child?
My younger sister started a part-time job at Chick-fil-A with a work-permit at the age of 15 (the same age as Taylor). Do you think it would be okay for a male manager at this store to administer corporal punishment to discipline any employee, especially a teenager minor? I hope the answer would be no.
This practice is barbaric.
I hate to hear news regarding this girl and hope that school makes series amends to the little girl as well as make serious changes to its discipline.
