Class Struggle: parents ignored

More light needed on abuse allegations

I wish Nathan Saunders, general vice president of the Washington Teachers Union, had given more thought to the statement he gave to Post reporter Bill Turque. He said "the corporal punishment rules and regulations that exist are not problematic" in the District schools. I think a lot of parents and teachers would agree with me that he is wrong about that.
