Louisianna: (HB649) Prohibits Corporal Punishment in Public Schools

This legislation would ban the use of any form of corporal punishment in all public schools within Louisiana, including hitting, paddling, striking, spanking, slapping, or any other physical force that causes pain or physical discomfort. 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.)
