    That's because God and the paddle were removed. Bring both back and these kids might start acting right.

    Heck you don't have to go as far back 1967. It was still the same way back when I graduated in 1986. All the problems in our school systems have only been in the last 20 years.

    It all starts at home. But I agree it needs to be reenforced at school but it will never be. I graduated in 2001 and I can remember getting whooped at school and yes I mean whooped.

    I have begged, pleaded and offered to sign any waiver to paddle them and it has happened just once that was my youngest and he was in about the 2nd grade and I dont recall what happened now 99% of the time they wanna recommend Medication ... We have put a stop to that in a very BLUNT way to several teachers that that wasnt an option ..

    They have only paddle my youngest boy (once) in about the 2nd grade the 3 of them have deserved FAR more than that IMO.. But they just WONT do it ..
    I asked 1 of my boys and to my suprise they still say the Pleage of Alligence and say GOD everyday... And I have been suprised that We still have prayers at the school Football/Basketball/Christmas here so I am glad that in my area schools have slipped but have not completely fallen yet...

    But the Liberals are invading FAST... :censored:
