IRVING (CBSDFW.COM) – Irving ISD school board president Steven Jones surprised attendees last night a the Irving school district meeting.

He proposed something be brought back that most have abandoned — corporal punishment.

The proposal caught some off guard, and angered quite a few. Then Jones quickly withdrew the item from the agenda.

CBS 11 has been trying to reach him, but has been unsuccessful.

Corporal punishment was once used across the United States. Studies have questioned its effectiveness, even linked it to disorders.

The state of Texas is still one of almost two dozen states that still let school districts use pain to punish.
