Mass Public Student Paddlings in Memphis

Story: MAHS Charter School corporal punishment - WREG

The way this is breaking down is, once a week, all the students are gathered together in an assembly. Then, any who have been in trouble the previous week are sent on stage and paddled in front of the entire student body.

"We tell our parents up front. Corporal punishment is a part of our discipline program. It's a part of what allows us to keep a safe sound environment in our school."

The director of the board for MAHS, Bernal Smith II, was unavailable for comment on whether or not he beats his wife publicly when she is "out of line".

We are looking for actual video of this paddling ritual, so, students & teachers, please send cell phone video recordings to :
