I thought corporal punishment was a relic of the past — until I found this map showing U.S. states that do not prohibit corporal punishment in schools. In 19 states teachers and administrators are not prohibited from hitting kids as a means of discipline. Even more shocking? According to The Nation, "In 2012, Mississippian schools alone hosted 39,000 floggings."

I had no idea that corporal punishment was used this often, how scary. I'm interested to know what type of corporal punishment was used the most. It seems that spanking and flogging are discussed the most in "The Nation's" article.
