Iron Eyes Cody, the 'crying' Indian, was Italian, not Indian. However, because he walked the talk and honored American Indian culture in his life, he was accepted and loved by them. - Ronni

paddling in schools......definately a thing of the past!!
School Boy, Parenting Style, School Days, Early Teachers, Remember Kids, Elementary Schools, Paddle School, High Schools, School Paddle
school paddle. I remember kids being sent to the office for a paddling when I was in elementary school.
paddling.. If you received one at school, boy were you in trouble at home. They sure changed my attitude.
Being paddled brutally in high school. This was the story of my elementary and secondary education. Not for doing something, but for telling my teachers and principals that corporal punishment is wrong and that paddling black kids in was similar to "slaverist" punishment. Their answers was, "Ok...you are next."
school paddle - we didn't have these - the teachers used leather straps a little thinner - you were a lucky person not to get one, Not necessarily a like but a memory at best.
school paddle... back then it was legal for teachers to give kids a good paddling when they needed one!
one of my early teachers had this in the corner of the room.The board of education!
