Friends of PTAVE,
Once again I am asking you for your participation. The CORPORAL
PUNISHMENT EXEMPTION form has more participating physicians now than
when you last saw it, but still nowhere near enough. We cannot put it to
use until the list is impressive--one hundred names at least. Meanwhile,
a relatively small band of board-wielding 'educators' in 23 states are
busy battering small children in their pelvic areas and the bureaucrats
who oversee the schools continue, as in the past, to avert their eyes
and pretend no such thing is happening. By the end of this school year
the number of schoolchildren who will have been vicitmized will be about
500,000. Some will need medical attention; some, psychological
attention. Many will have had their educational careers sabatoged by
this early exposure to adult bullies who operate with impunity. So,
please let's get busy with this. Everybody reading this knows at least
one medical doctor practicing in the U.S. who will join the list.
Attached is a copy of the CORPORAL PUNISHMENT EXEMPTION form and a
solicitation letter which you can use as-is or modify. Thanks.
