Daily Talker: Kansas Law Would Allow Harder Spanking

Teachers in Kansas would have more power to spank children under a bill introduced in the state legislature.

Currently, state law allows teachers, other caregivers and parents to spank children, as long as it is not hard enought o leave marks. Under the bill by Kansas House member Gail Ginney, a Democrat from Wichita, the law would allow up to ten strikes of the hand, and smaks that are hard enough to cause redness and bruising.
