you know people just recently began pressing charges for whippings at school. and during that time and especially out west there were very few male school teachers.

Actually, what that teacher did was perfectly legal for the time. There would be no charges to be brought against him, and he would have had no trouble finding another position.

You and I might find it abhorrent, but it's only within the last 50 years that corporal punishment in schools was outlawed.

I read your story a while back and enjoyed it. I have just read it for a second time. Poor Little Joe...he just couldn't do anything right in the eyes of that evil teacher. Well done.
