Opt-out policy for school districts that use corporal punishment

The State House of Representatives wants school districts that use corporal punishment to provide an opt-out policy to parents. The legislation cleared the House Monday. The bill requires school officials to attempt to contact a parent before such punishment is used. Spanking also will not be administered to a student if a parent has asked in writing it not be done. Fewer than half of the 115 districts allow corporal punishment.
