The states allows school officials to spank teenagers of the opposite gender, apparently. On top of that insane fact, one commenter noted that the spanking policy has a huge flaw.
Let me see if I have this straight. They must allow males to spank females because there aren't enough females to do the spanking, yet a female must be present as witness, just to make sure no funny business is going on. Call me silly, but why not just have the female "witness" do the spanking. Problem solved, no cross-gender spankings...
It would appear that Texas overlooked this rational solution. But when we're talking about spanking, rationality doesn't really enter into the equation.
