Sydney Winder started this petition to State Senator Kathleen Riebe

It recently came to my attention that it is legal in nineteen of the US states to use corporal punishments in schools. It came to my attention when I met my friends who lived in small towns in the southern parts of our country where corporal punishment is used. While many of these areas are rural small towns, they are still our citizens and parts of our country. It abhors me that it is used anywhere in this country, much less that teachers will carry paddles around with them so that they may at any time pull a student outside and hit them. My friend, who has chosen to remain anonymous, not only comes from an abusive household, but an abusive school district. I feel that it is my responsibility, as a citizen in the Unites States of America, to stop this outrageous behavior by our teachers and the  emotional abuse and humiliation of our school aged children.
