Subject: Twiggs County advances to the rear

It appears, and Iím at all clear on this, that Twiggs County Public Schools has reinstated corporal punishment.

The reason, according to the AP, is "We had a policy but we weren't using it."

Got it. When school officials refuse to follow their own policies, use the time tested method of beating little kids. On the other hand, if school officials arenít following current policy, Iím not sure why they would follow a new one. Other interesting logic behind this reads, ďThe more you give them [kids] rope, the more they try.Ē Iím guessing the APís Twiggs-to-English translator did a poor job on this one.

Thereís more.

At 1100 students, Twiggs County Public Schools is about a third the size of a typical GCPS middle school, yet they have their own police chief. This makes Alvin look like a tightwad, since Gwinnett would need 150 such positions for equivalent coverage. The curious part is their Chiefís observation that most behavior problems occur in middle school Ė mentioned in an article about paddling.

I hate to be the one to point this out to the Twiggs BOE, but spanking teenage girls falls directly into a category that has nothing to do with education. Or art.

Maybe someone else can find some social redeeming value hidden here:
