Students With Disabilities Face Corporal Punishment at Higher Rates

In the 2006 -- 2007 school year, nearly a quarter of a million school
children were subjected to corporal punishment in public schools.
Impairing Education, a report released this week by the ACLU and Human
Rights Watch, finds that students with disabilities -- who have a
right to appropriate, inclusive educational programs that give them
the opportunity to thrive -- are nonetheless subjected to this violent
discipline at disproportionately high rates.
Action you can take:

Step 1: Stand with the ACLU against corporal punishment.

Step 2: If you don't know if corporal punishment in schools is still legal in your state, find out here:
