Thanks, But No Spanks

| GA, USA | Learning | May 26, 2015

(I’m with my parents, visiting a school to help my parents decide whether they’re going to enroll me there. We’re talking to the principal about discipline.)

Parent: “So, what kind of discipline do you use here?”

Principal: “We give verbal warnings first, and then students are sent to my office, where they are spanked. Depending on the parent’s preference, I can spank them or a parent can be called to the school to spank them.”

(My parents are dumbfounded. We don’t spank in my household.)

Me: “Mr. [Principal], people aren’t for hitting!”

Mom: “Yeah, we’re not enrolling her here.”
