Twiggs County Schools Reinstating Corporal Punishment

Twiggs County Schools, a small system in Middle Georgia, is reinstating corporal punishment.  As a first year teacher, I taught English at Twiggs County High School.  They definitely had a major problem with discipline at that time.  In fact, I’ve never seen anything more insane in my life.  However, violence in the form of gang activity was already a huge part of the students’ lives.  I’m not sure what Twiggs needs to do to fix their discipline problem, but I’m not sure hitting kids is going to have the effect they’re after.
