Taylor Santos is a top student and athlete at Springtown High School, northwest of Fort Worth.
“Her grades are very important to her,” said her mother, Anna Jorgensen.
Taylor said she didn’t know a fellow student copied some of her classwork, but the school sent both girls to two days of in-school suspension.
After day one, Taylor didn’t want to return. She went to the vice principal’s office to request a paddling instead. He had Taylor call her mother, who gave her approval.
“I knew school policy was females swatted females, and males swatted males,” Jorgensen said. “If Taylor wanted that, I said that would be fine.”
But she quickly disapproved when she saw the results and learned who actually did the paddling.
“I came unglued,” Jorgensen said.
While a woman was present in the room, a male vice principal swatted Taylor. Springtown ISD policy states “corporal punishment shall be administered only by an employee who is the same sex as the student.”
“It looked almost like it had been burned and blistered, it was so bad,” Jorgensen said.
