Teacher spanking a child?

To start off, I am 28 years old. I went to Kindergarten in 1990 (in Ohio), making me 5 years old. I specifically remember children getting spanked for being bad, by the teacher. As long as the teacher had another teacher to witness the act and only used her hand, it was legal for her to spank a child that was being bad. Once, there was a boy in my class that just wouldn't listen to her. She said this was the final straw, took him by the hand into the hallway. You could see her walk into the class next door and have that teacher come out to be her witness. Then, you heard the spankings followed by crying. When my teacher returned, the child was not with her. He probably was sent to the principals office.  Do any of you have stories like this?

Nope. That's terrifying and definitely not the teacher's job.

I'm sure it's illegal now. But, 20+ years ago apparently it was allowed. Yes, I agree! Not the teachers job what so ever.

No. I'd have someone arrested for raising a hand to my child.

It is one of those memories that always stuck with me. I was spanked as a child by my parents, but not by the teacher. Then, I thought it was normal for the teacher to do that. 23 years later, heck no!

Absolutely NOT . I went to school in the late 60's and 70's and I was never spanked nor did I see or hear of anyone being spanked.....smdh     My mom would have blown someones brains out if they spanked me or my brother. My family doesn't spank for any reason so no one else is going to spank us either
