In the past day the Missouri School District of Casville brought back corporal punishment. This came upon parents not wanting their students suspended. Casville Superintendent Merilyn Johnson declined an interview with the Washington Post, by saying “At this time we will focus on educating our students.” Corporal punishment in Casville pertains the beating of a child’s buttocks with a wooden paddle.
At this time it is unknown how long this policy will stay intact, but this truly reflects the old fashioned ways of Southern Missouri. More updates will be provided as this story develops.
