"I agree with CAPE's worry about federal intrusion into private schools"

There was something like this in mainstream UK education; corporal punishment was outlawed in state schools over a decade before it was outlawed in private schools. The deciding factor in this 'intrusion' was basically the concept of human rights and the rights of the child.

So bluntly, you have state intervention in private schools all the time - they have to abide by fire regulations, food hygeine regulations and so on. I don't see why getting punishment policies in line with basic human rights should be any different.

I agree with Marge, the basic human rights of the child should be maintained wherever they are schooling.
