History repeated itself during Friday’s Legislative session, where once again prohibiting the use of corporal punishment in a school setting was struck down by legislators, this time by a 12-2 vote. #visource#usvi#news... See MoreSee Less
Corporal punishment is government sanctioned child abuse- I am absolutely shocked and appalled that a supermajority of our elected officials could and would support this.
Hold on, this failed not once, but TWICE?! I hope all VI tax payers are satisfied that they are paying for people to abuse children in our schools...
This is disgraceful!!!
Separation of church and state. Reason over faith. JS.
Gotta protect VI culture. Child abuse.
Lol, we elected this.
This is BULLSHIT! The VI students should NOT get beaten by a school official. Schools should be a SAFE place for children. Sens. Sarauw and Novell Francis, Jr. you will get my vote. The rest of you F*%# Off!!!
