In Tennessee, a businessman who spanked two of his underage employees must register as a sex offender.

And yet it remains legal for government schoolteachers to arbitrarily spank minor schoolchildren in their compulsory care.

And no one even talks about the cognitive dissonance.

In what context? Most schools of which I'm aware have policies against any form of physical punishment of students.

Context is Tennessee, Tom. The very same state that acknowledged that a boss that spanks his underage employees is sexually abusing them, turns around and bends the kiddies over for the principal's paddle. Apologies for not spelling it out more clearly.
