    We had a principal who was hitting children for throwing snowballs and she turned on the intercom system for all to hear it.
    There was an uproar and then all she apologized for was the intercom having been on, not the actual beating of children.

    In those days principals ordered "the strap" from a school supply catalog:

    I'm a bit older than some here. I got my mouth washed out with soap and paddled with a large wooden paddle with holes drilled in it.

    And to think, now I pay for that. :c

    I had nuns. They would smack my hand with a stack of rulers because I didn't write neat.
    Oh gee, my hand is almost broken, I can write much better with it now :rolleye:

    I went to Elementary School right after paddling was stopped. Our principal still kept the paddle hanging in his office though.

    Although, it wouldn't have been on the school to paddle me. My dad would have taken care of that if I acted up.

    Not only did I go to Catholic School, I went to Irish Catholic school.

    I don't really think I learned a thing except how to be terrified all the time. Truly. I didn't even learn anything about Catholicism, just repeated a bunch of stuff in Church. Sad, really - a waste of time.

    I know exactly what you're talking about. I went to a Catholic school in the late sixties, early seventies until about the third grade. Everyone I know about the same age or older that went to a Catholic school can tell you horror stories about nuns!

    Ever get the "Crucifixion" punishment? Don't know what it is? It's where you stand in front of the class with your feet together and your arms held out to your sides. Then you have to hold a dictionary (not the small paperback ones, I mean the BIG muthereffen unabridged hardcover Oxford) in each hand. You stand there until your arms ache and if your hands begin to lower past your shoulders, you get a smack across the shins. There's a reason why so many Catholics aren't Catholic anymore.

    I remember getting paddled a few times.....it was no big deal back then. My mom and dad didn't go up to the school raising hell. I can't imagine that happeming today....we are so defensive and protective of our children....myself included. Truth is these little fuckers today need the shit beaten out of them. Our warped entitled society can't believe anything bad should happen to them.....even if they are wrong.

    I remember a teacher twisting my earlobe pretty hard for being loud while waiting in line to go into a class

    Isn't that kind of behavior a requirement for being a gym teacher or coach?

    I remember waiting for the bus in 4th grade (they bussed my class across town to another school) when the principal plucked me out of line, took me to her office, and spanked me. The next day, I got called in with my mom and that principal was in tears apologizing to us because she said she had made a mistake and spanked the wrong kid. The funny thing was that I was such a little smartass back then that I really hadn't questioned the spanking in the first place...I just assumed it was probably for any one of my many regular offenses!

    The only person of color in my school was a very dark skinned sub continental Indian fellow. It sucked for him because people still yelled African American racial slurs at him even though he clearly wasn't

    Same here. A paddle with holes drilled in in for less wind resistance.
