OKLAHOMA: PROHIBITS THE USE OF CORPORAL PUNISHMENT WITH STUDENTS WITH A DISABILITY IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS

(HB 1028 and SB 1204)

House Bill 1028 and Senate Bill 1204 would ban the use of corporal punishment on students with a disability in public schools in Oklahoma, including hitting, paddling, spanking, slapping, or any other physical force as a means of discipline. Increasing evidence shows that corporal punishment is ineffective and causes significant emotional and physical harm. Send an email to your state legislators now to let them know where you stand on this issue! Personalizing the message increases its impact.
