Missouri: Corporal Punishment in Schools (HB 1581)
House Bill 1581 prohibits the use of corporal punishment and spanking in all Missouri school districts and charter schools. Corporal Punishment is defined as the infliction of pain by an adult upon the body of a child as a penalty for doing something that has been disapproved of by the adult. Increasing evidence shows that corporal punishment is ineffective and causes significant emotional and physical harm.
