Governor Strickland Proposes Official Ban On School Paddling.

Governor Ted Strickland's proposals to change education in Ohio AND the way schools are funded have prompted dozens of news reports and plenty of debate. Most of it has focused on plans to change the way schools are paid for...the way teachers are trained....and the way students are tested. Buried in the governor's plan is something that hasn't gotten much attention - Strickland's proposal to ban corporal punishment. Statehouse correspondent Bill Cohen reports - although it's a hot-button issue...the governor's plan would NOT mean that BIG of a drop in school paddling.
