For those schools who don't have it, or practice it, we need to bring it back. Of course, this would probably bring out the pacifists touting their claims that paddling is abusive and cruel, and other such rhetoric.
The ACLU comes to mind, when such an agenda comes up. Some have said they would "backhand" a teacher if they were to paddle their child. Sounds like the ACLU to me. The ACLU has been a boil on our knecks for a long time, and quite frankly, they're not about Civil rights, but about encouraging the freedom to do more bad behavior. Which is more than good reason to note the current irresponsibility, and children being led into lifestyles by their also delinquent peers.
This is a perfect reason for why we need the paddles back in this country. So many households experience violent protests by trying to appeal to their parents to get them every little wish and whim they want. Thus, you have little or no discipline. Then you have parents who scream about litigating their responsiblities that they should be doing, and thus, when their spoiled little brats get out of control, and the school tries to do something about it, very little measures are taken out to be teaching the children how to be nice and kind to others. Far too many parents reject that which will bring their families together, by taking their children to church and teaching them in the love and gentle admonition of the Lord.
Kids these days, think they can quite simply get away with basically anything at school, including bullying, and threatening teachers, administrators, and other students, why? Because there are no real repercussions to their actions, and are being emboldened by the attitudes that are influencing their behavior at home. To say that some of these youth are brazen is to put it lightly. There is no fear, disrespect is rampant and the school personnel are essentially hopeless in this type of situtation, and they try to deliver effective measures to correct the children. This doesn't even account for the disruption to those students who want to try and learn.
Detention, parental notes, and suspensions don't work. The threat of the paddle would serve as a great deterrent.
For those of you who don't like the idea of corporal punishment, that's fine. Home school your kids, or put them in a private institution, because it shouldn't be the job of taxpayers to have to straighten your kids out!
