My school years late 60s and 1970s. The schools did paddle. I don't know of any maximum limits. Usually the number of smacks was 3 or 5. I got 7 once but usually 4 or 5. I had a coup!e of teachers who applied their paddle freely and often. Mr.Jaworski my 7th and 8th grade math teacher he was a stickler. For order I. His class.however as the saying goes boys will be boys. I was a class clown and this got me in trouble. He did not appreciate my antics and the first week when I made a comment about something he said without raising my hand and the class laughed openly. I was taken out in to the hall and !are.to bend over hands on wall. He was big and strong and had a hard paddle. He hit me and I stood up and he said remain place or.you'll get double. Well He gave me 5 scorchers and I was in tears. I kept my mouth shut for a while anyway. He always gave me 5 for my foolishness except once I acted up during a fire.drill he gave me 7. I had to sit carefully. Every teacher had a paddle and used it.

I don't think there were limits on how many smacks you could receive in my schools. The times I was paddled in school I got between 3 &6 smacks. These were more than enough. being late for class automatically got you 3 smacks either by the teacher or if you were sent to the office for a late pass. There were few excuses for being late. Any teacher could paddle and most did. I got 6 for skipping class in 9th grade and before the principal gave me the 6 he called my mother to inform her what I had done and what he was going to do. As bad as the 6 were and they hurt alot my mother did worse. Need les to say it was along time before I contemplated skipping class.
