WACO - Corporal punishment or paddling is still allowed in 20 states, including Texas.
With discipline becoming a major issue in public schools, one Texas town proudly upholds its old-fashioned discipline tool.
Temple ISD School Board President Steve Wright says since the reinstatement of paddling last May, discipline problems have dropped dramatically.
The United States is the only nation in the western world which still permits corporal punishment in its schools.
