When I was in the 2nd to 4th grades, the principle of my elementary school, Mr. Stevens, was known to spank with a yardstick. This would have been from 1957 to 59 in rural Massachusetts. It didn't happen often, and as far as I know only happened to boys.
The closest I ever came was like this. A frequent punishment was to be kept inside at recess. We were supposed to stand in the school lobby on the black linoleum tiles that were part of the pattern of the floor. My buddy and I were kept in one day and he acted out in the lobby just as Mr. Stevens turned the corner. He took my friend, whose name I don't even remember, into the office and I knew that the paddling's took place in an anteroom of his office. I strained my ears to hear either the flats or the cries, but I heard nothing. In a few minutes, my friend returned to his block, looking rueful. After Mr. Stevens was out of hearing, I asked how it was and he shrugged and said, "no big deal."
I suspect, but I'm not certain that my mother had let the school know that I was not to be spanked. I was never spanked as a child, though some of my cousins were and so were some neighbors. I never saw or heard any of these except once, when my neighbor's older sister, about 17, stayed out all night. When she slinked in, her mother lit into her with a wooden spoon. This was terrifying to me, not erotic at all.
Mr. Stevens was not respected by the students and I think he was not very well respected by staff as well though this is much more difficult to confirm. Though I moved away, I still had relatives in the town and heard years later that Mr. Stevens powerboat burned in an arson. I speculate that perhaps some resentful students had a hand in this action, but there is no evidence.
Your obedient servant,
