At CLE, we were heartened to read Secretary Cordona’s Dear Colleague Letter condemning corporal punishment and urging all states to instead focus on more holistic approaches to behavior.

We urge Congress to take quick action to ban the use of corporal punishment in all public schools by passing the Protecting All Students in Schools Act.
