Spanking, paddling and padded rooms: Are school punishments getting worse?

"Paradoxically, I think itís a good sign, and Iím totally against all spanking," Murray Straus, co-director of the Family Research Laboratory at the University of New Hampshire, tells Yahoo Shine. ďItís a sign of desperation on the part of people trying to hold back the century-long development of more humane treatment of children. Even if it passes, which is unlikely, itís not going to change the trend.Ē
