Corporal Punishment Still Really Happens in Schools?


ABC news posted a news article about a paddling incident in Fort Worth, Texas.  First, I thought paddling was a thing of the past.  The main issue of this story is that a male vice principal, with the observation of a male police officer, paddled a female high school student.  The school policy dictates that the paddling be done by the same sex. 
Not to sound sexist but males are traditionally harder hitters than females and females will usually hurt more from this type of strike.  Also, how did this girl feel having to do this while having two male authority figures there for intimidation.  As a parent, I would probably attempt to pursue legal action for sexual harassment or even sexual assault.  Any opinions?
