After the first tpunishment was
inflicted on Francis McAdams b
laying him across a chair and
striking him repeatedly with a
rubber hose I went to your super
intendettfc Mr Davis and told Mm
that I was opposed to punish
ment of this kind being applied
to children at school or anywhere
else and that if my boy could
not attend school without being
subjected to such treatment that
I would take him from school anc
make other arrangements for his
edueationi Mr Davis assured an
that he respected my wishes in
this matter and would comply
with my request to phone me
should my boy cause any further
annoyance at school and asked
me to send the boy to school
This was done with the firm
belief that my wishes in regard
to corporal punishment would be
respected Yet two days later the
boy was again whipped with a
rubber hose aind now you say
that wa may again send him to
school if he will comply with the
above resolution and his parents
also- comply with requirements
of tlie resolution I am aware
that my boy may have erred in
his conduct at school what boy
lias not and no doubt at times
has caiusecl his teacher much an
noyance and I also fully realize
how important it is to a school
to have eood discipline but I
cannot be convinced that in or
der to obtain this- discipline that
it should be necessary for the su
perintendent of the school to hole
a child across a desk or chair
while a teacher administers blows
on the child with a piece of
heavy rubber hose
Very respectfully yours
After the reading of the com
munication Supt Davis was re
quested to make a statement ol
the aiffaiir to the board in writ
inig which follows
To the Board of Education
ientlemen In regard to th
ommunieation from Mr Jame
IcAdamsi I will say that it con
ains two essential errors Dui
ng the conversation between Mi
JcAdama and myself I did nc
promise him that liis boy Fran
iis would not be whipped if Ik
returned to school I did tel
iim that it was impossiblafor m
to change our methods of discip
line to please an individual ae
that would goon leave us with no
method at all I advised him fo
the good of the boy to send Fran
cis back to school as he was not
to be punished again for anj
past offense and could easily
avoid all future punishment by
keeping his deportment good
but I never directly or indirectly
promised him any immunity
for Francis above that of any oth
ef child in your schools
As to the inference that I held
Francis while his teacher admin
istered corporal punishment I wil
say that I was not even- present
either time he was punished and
his teaeher assures me tliait in
neither case was he held across
a desk chair or other object
while beinig punished
RespertfuUy submitted
Moved that tlie statement of
Supt Davis be accepted and that
the board reaffirm their formei
acttion Motioan carried
