Description

StateImpact Florida reporter Sarah Gonzalez dug up school corporal punishment data from the Florida Department of Education and mapped reported instances of school spankings. This revealed corporal punishment was occurring only in Florida's rural areas. She found 3,661 students were spanked in Florida schools in 2010, and that paddling does not deter students from misbehaving. Students who are paddled once are often re-paddled.
