Subject: School Spanking Survey

So I had this idea to do a survey among people who post here about school spankings. I'm especially interested in how it breaks down depending on your age. I was spanked in school growing up myself in the 1980's. So here are some questions for the willing:

1.) What is your age today?
2.) Were you spanked in school growing up?
3.) Between what ages in school were you spanked?
4.) Did your school use an implement? If so, what was it?
5.) Was there a limit on the number of "swats" you could get in one spanking?
6.) Did only the principal spank? Or were teachers allowed to do so as well?
7.) Did your school allow bare-bottomed spankings or not?
8.) Were spankings given privately, or in a spot where it could be seen by other kids?
9.) Do you think being spanked in school was an effective punishment compared to others, such as corner time, standing in the hallway, or after school/in-school detention?
10.) Were boys and girls treated differently when it came to corporal punishment? If so, how?
11.) Did the school require the permission of your parents to spank you?

I went to grade school in the 60s, so you can guess my age.
Most teachers spanked in front of class till 6th grade, so till age 12.

Some spanked with their hand while others used a small paddle.

I think there was a limit to the number of swats because I never saw anyone get more than 6, normally about 4 swats.

Bare-bottomed spankings were only given in private for more serious matters. They were also given in front of another witness, so it was doubly embarrassing.

As for its effectiveness it depended very much on the boy or girl. Some were rarely spanked, others occasionally, while some boys were getting spanked all the time. I guess I was somewhere in the middle and got quite a few spankings in most grades.

Girls were rarely spanked compared to boys.

No, the school did not require the permission of parents to spank. It was school policy applied to everyone and I don't think there was any law in those days requiring parents permission.

1. 60
2. yes
3. 6 through 12
4. implements depended on the faculty member but it could be hand, paddle, ruler or whatever. Most used a paddle.
5. No limits
6.Pretty much any staff could spank including office staff, teachers, coaches, bus drivers and even custodians.
7.Yes, that was left up to the one doing the spanking. In fact one of my teaches in fifth grade spanked my bare bottom after class. I saw it happen to other students, male and female as well.
8. Depended on who was spanking.
9. yes
10. No boys and girls got it about the same. Girls had it a little worse in many cases, because in the days when girls were made to wear dresses or skirts instead of pants, teachers often pulled up their dress or skirt to spank them.
11.no

I am 65 today & graduated high school in 1973. Every school I attended had spankings. Elementary school it was reserved for Boys that got into fights on the playground. The Principal was this old woman so spankings were done by a male 5th grade teacher who was one giant a-hole. Never heard of anyone getting more than 3 with the paddle over pants. Spankings were done in the Office & It was not uncommon to see boys waiting on a bench outside her door. Middle school there were rumors of the shop teachers taking boys back into a storage room & spanking their bare behinds but no one ever came forward & admitted it happened,but a girl in my Bio class got spanked by a male teacher, 3 swats with his meter stick on the seat of her skirt. Never heard of any in HS.

Thanks for responses I've gotten so far. It occurred to me that, out of interests of fairness, I really should answer my own questions. So here goes:

1.) 46
2.) Yes.
3.) 10-15.
4.) Always the paddle.
5.) Number of swats was limited to five swats per offense.
So if you broke more than one rule, you could theoretically get more than five.
6.) Principals, Vice-Principals. Only one from a gym teacher.
7.) Bare-bottom spankings were strongly frowned upon.
8.) Spankings were generally given in private with an adult witness. But if you got in trouble with another kid, you usually got your swats in front of one another.
9.) It seemed more effective to me. I was a crier when I was spanked and I hated crying in front of others.
10.) Boys and girls were definitely treated differently. Girls were rarely spanked at school.
11.) Written permission from parents was obtained at the beginning of the school year.

1.) 56 Ė spanked in the 1970s
2.) Yes Ė it was quite common in 1970s England
3.) Between about 6 and 14
4.) Usually the slipper, but I have been caned on occasion
5.) There was a limit of 6 strokes, but it was quite rare to get more than 4
6.) Most teachers spanked with the slipper or similar, but only the head used the cane
7.) Bare bottom spanking was unusual, but not unheard of.
8.) Boys were spanked at the front of class, if a girl was spanked, then it would be in private.
9.) Since most kids preferred spanking to other punishments, then probably it isnít much of a deterrent. Most of us regarded it as part of school life, and something we would all get from time to time, so didnít modify our behaviour.
10.) Boys were spanked quite commonly. Girls only got spanked occasionally for very serious things
11.) The school didnít need parental permission, and didnít inform parents. We did appreciate that they didnít

) What is your age today? 40

2.) Were you spanked in school growing up? Two times.

3.) Between what ages in school were you spanked? Both times in kindergarten so about 6 years old.

4.) Did your school use an implement? If so, what was it? Nope.

5.) Was there a limit on the number of "swats" you could get in one spanking? No idea. I'm not even sure she was allowed to do that.

6.) Did only the principal spank? Or were teachers allowed to do so as well? It was my teacher.

7.) Did your school allow bare-bottomed spankings or not? It was over clothes.

8.) Were spankings given privately, or in a spot where it could be seen by other kids? Other kids could have seen

9.) Do you think being spanked in school was an effective punishment compared to others, such as corner time, standing in the hallway, or after school/in-school detention? It must have been because both times I laid right down and took my nap like I was supposed to.

10.) Were boys and girls treated differently when it came to corporal punishment? If so, how? No because the first time she spanked the girl I was talking to instead of taking a nap, then she spanked me. It was done the same.

11.) Did the school require the permission of your parents to spank you? I have no idea and I never told my parents out if fear of being in trouble.

5. The maximum was twelve but no-one ever got that many
6. The headmistress and if she was absent, the deputy headmistress.
7. Not officially but a few pupils were punished bare, including me (once)
