good grief america

Adults can hit kids at schools in twenty American states and 'Disabled Students are Spanked More'. I'll skip arguments about trust, safety, and modeling social skills, and just say that smacking vulnerable young people around at school works against what have been shown to be the most basic elements of therapeutic success. By science.

Thankfully there are people capable of restating this problem so as not to naively recapitulate its logic of oppression.
