Children still spanked in Ohio schools

I didn't know that spanking was still used as a form of discipline in some Ohio public schools:

Many parents refuse to paddle their children, and a lot of people believe it has been taken out of the equation in the school systems, but that isn’t true in all schools.

“Many parents can’t or don’t want their children going to Saturday School because of a discipline problem they may be having. Instead the parents can sign a paper and agree to have the child paddled instead of making them go to school on Saturday. It is entirely up to the parents, and it is effective in most cases,”.
