KY Bill Would End Corporal Punishment in Public Schools

A bill being proposed in Kentucky would prohibit the use of corporal punishment, or paddling, in Kentucky public schools.

House Bill 393 would prohibit school teachers, administrators, and other staff from using corporal punishment.

Right now, each school district in Kentucky makes its own decision about the use of corporal punishment.

Last year, about 25 school districts in the state used corporal punishment.

The bill was introduced by Rep. Jim Wayne (D-Louisville).
