High school principal ℞ for discipline: Spank teen girl liberally with paddle

A Texas schoolgirl is nursing a bruised and  ‘blistered’ behind after she was spanked by her male vice principal.

Springtown High School sophomore Taylor  Santos was walloped by the teacher after allegedly letting another student copy  her work.

But her mother, Anna Jorgensen, has  complained to the school, furious that they allowed her daughter to be brutally  paddled by a man.

Taylor was given two days in-school  suspension for cheating, though she claims she didn’t know the student copied  her assignment, according to WFAA.

After day one Taylor, a top student, opted to  get a paddling rather than miss a second day’s classes, but the decision left  her in searing pain.

Texas is one of 19 states that still allow  corporal punishment, however, according to Springtown High School’s policy, the  teacher administering the blows has to be the same sex as the  student.

‘I knew school policy was females swatted  females, and males swatted males,’ Jorgensen said. ‘If Taylor wanted that, I  said I would be fine.’

But she said she ‘came unglued’ when she saw  the welts on her daughter’s bottom and found out that a man was  responsible.

She said the brute force of the spanking left  her daughter’s bottom fire-engine red and covered in bruises.

‘It looked almost like it had been burned and  blistered, it was so bad,’ said Jorgensen, who took photographs of the damage as  evidence.

‘It was bright red. I still have welts on me  today,’ Taylor added, 48 hours after the paddling.

The day after her daughter’s spanking,  Jorgensen called the vice principal to complain but he defended his  actions.

‘He told me this was normal for her bottom to look like this after receiving swats, and that he was not aware of the school policy that females swat females,’ she said. ‘He used too much force.’

Swatting students in public schools has been  outlawed by 31 states.

Efforts to ban it in Wyoming, North Carolina,  Louisiana and Texas failed but last year laws were introduced in both Texas and  North Carolina that gave parents the right to exempt their students from  paddling.

Rather than reprimanding the vice principal,  WFAA reported that Springtown ISD Superintendent Mike Kelley was going to ask  the school board to abolish the same-gender policy, claiming that adhering to it  can be difficult on some campuses because of the ratio of male to female  teachers.

Jorgensen is outraged, and says she’ll be  attending the board meeting to vehemently vote ‘no’.

‘I think Taylor is proof that we need to keep  that policy,’ she said. ‘Men are too big  and strong to be hitting 96-pound girls.’
