Reason #4,579 why I homeschool

Here in Oklahoma we have common sense. We voted for Bush. We outlawed homosexual marriage, and when our kids misbehave in school, we swat their behinds. We don't fall for that nonsense that corporal punishment teaches violence, because if that were the case having the police carry guns would also promote violence, as would having jails to lock bad guys in, having an army would be even worse.

So when Scott McConnell went to college to get his master's degree in Education at Lemoyne College, he wrote a paper discussing the pros and cons of corporal punishment. But Lemoyne is in Syracuse, New York, smack dab in the heart of Loony Leftist Land where they don't spank their kids, and their kids show their gratitude by sending letters home from juvenile lockup. Anyway, the dim wits at Lemoyne booted Scott out with the statement, “If we believe a student is not suitable for classroom instruction based on his or her educational philosophy we have an obligation that is consistent with the College's mission and that upholds New York State law and education regulations.”

Ironically Lemoyne is a Catholic college. While I'm not Catholic, I've heard enough about Catholic schools to be under the impression that they are big on corporal punishment, at least in parochial schools.
