Wow, that is awful. What is wrong with people.When my daughter was in kindergarten we moved from New Mexico, where the parent had to sign a form giving permission for the principal to spank their child, to Texas, where the teacher was allowed to spank the children in front of the rest of the class. Parents had to fill out a form to not allow any spanking by anyone at school. I didn't know this until my daughter came home traumatized because the teacher spanked a boy in class with a paddle. I called the school the next day furious and found out the rules. I went that day and filled out the forms for both my duaghters. I can't even imagine a kindergarten teacher having a discipline problem that can't be resolved in some other manner.
