Finalize Legal Brief

Please make this better.

The goal is to look at this from the eyes of a reporter. The case is Ingraham v. Wright.

Listed below is feedback from my professor which should be incorporated into the brief in someway My response to her question is a resounding NO regardng corporal punishent in my school district.

This 1977 landmark case established that corporal punishment of public school students did not require any formal due process, such as a notice and a hearing, and under no circumstances could it be considered “cruel and unusual punishment” as the term is used in the Eighth Amendment. However, litigation over the practice continues. It makes good sense for administrators to provide due process, even with the ruling.

Corporal punishment continues to be legal in Texas. TEC §37.0011 defines “corporal punishment” as: “the deliberate infliction of physical pain by hitting, paddling, spanking, slapping, or any other physical force used as a means of discipline.” The law also specifies that if a school board adopts a code of conduct that permits corporal punishment, a district educator may use it unless the parent has previously provided a written, signed statement prohibiting the use of corporal punishment. This is an “opt out” provision for those parents who object to the use of corporal punishment (Walsh, Kremerer & Maniotis, 2014)

Is corporal punishment permitted in your school district?

Do you think a U.S. Supreme Court decision in 2018 would be different from the Ingraham ruling in 1977?
