Mississippi Paddling

The following is a true account of a girl at school in the US state of Mississippi. It appeared on the ‘old’ site and also on our otd-memories website.

My name is Victoria and I’m now twenty years old. I thought that you might appreciate having an entirely non-fictional account of one person’s real experience at a US school.

I grew up in coastal Mississippi. My school had the paddle, but it didn’t use it all that much or at least not like I hear about in Texas and Arkansas etc. It was something we knew about (and were leery of), but usually it was the usual suspects, the repeat offenders.
