Abilene ISD eliminates corporal punishment from discipline methods for 2016-17


A new student code of conduct was approved for the 2016-17 school year by the Abilene Independent School District's trustees Monday, including a controversial removal of a particular form of discipline.

Based on administrative recommendation, corporal punishment was struck from the district's policies regarding how administrators are allowed to discipline children.

While Texas law provides educators the ability to use physical contact with students to modify behavior, Abilene's administrators argued the risks are too high to them and it's use has been nonexistent for years.
