To the Honorable Board of Edu
cation McCook Nebraska
Gentlemen A sense of justice
aiot only to myself but to other
parents whose ehildretn have been
punished with unnecessary sev
erity prompts me to reply to the
published statement submitted to
you by Mr Davis which you gra
ciously accepted There are al
ways two sides to a case and be
fore you passed your resolution
published in each city paper it
wonld seem justice required that
you hear both sides before pass
ing and publishing a resolution
which reads as though it had
been prepared previous to your
meeting by your superintendent
He says he did not promise
me that Francis should not
be whipped etc and that he
promised no immunity for
Francis I did not claim that he
used those exact words he does
not deny he told me lie would
respect my wishes in regard
to corporal punishment nor demy
his promise to telephone me
which if he had kept would have
given me an opportunity to re
move the boy from school before
anyone was caused any trouble
He did not tell me it was im
possible for us to change our
methods of instruction to please
an individual etc oiat was not
even mentioned
Although the first time Fran
cis was punished he was forced
to lay across a eliaar while being
struck with a heavy rubber hose
and the second tame two teachers
participated in his punishment
which produced large bruises and
