    Of course. Detention, writing lines, being made to learn a long hard poem ... all of those are common and perfectly permissible.

    Rather than abolishing the practice, however, the board members took pains to preserve teachers' ability to physically discipline students: parents must now opt in with written permission allowing their children to be paddled when teachers feel it's justified; previously, parents had to opt out of corporal punishment.

    Of course. Research shows that incentives and rewards are more effective long term, but sometimes a student has to be removed from a situation, by re-locating them or sending them to the principal's office.

    Yes, they can put them in the far back of the classroom, facing away.
