Punishment Permission Slip in Backpack

Permission Slip
Wendy Chandler

Parents are always getting permission slips from the school.  They could be for the class field trip or asking permission to use your child’s image.  But imagine the surprise this Alabama mom received when she opened up her elementary school-age daughter’s backpack and found a permission slip to administer physical force as a form of discipline on her child.

Wendy Chandler, who’s daughter attends the Leeds Elementary School in Leeds, Alabama thought it must be a mistake.  The Corporal Punishment Parental Consent Form was sent to parents asking them to indicate their preference with a check on the “I do not give permission” or the “I give permission” line on the form.  The permission slip went on to say that if the parent didn’t want physical punishment administered, the parent must inform the principal.

After Chandler checked the “no” portion of the permission slip, she also added at the bottom of the note a message as to why would it ever be ok to show violence toward anyone. But she didn’t stop there. Chandler started a Change.org petition asking President Obama and other elected officials to stop corporal punishment in all schools.

South Dakota is one of 31 states in the country that do not allow corporal punishment in the school system.
