NC Corporal Punishment Bill gets National Media

NASW-NC was a member of the Coalition that worked with Rep. Alexander on the Banning of Corporal Punishment in the Public Schools (HB 873 SB 874). Our School Social Work Practice Unit Chair & 2007 Advocate of the Year, Dr. Gary Shaffer, professor at the UNC School of Social Work has recently had an article published in the NASW School Social Work Practice Section Newsletter. Congratulations to Dr. Shaffer!

Even though our up hill efforts were, in the end, in vain, with members like Dr. Shaffer & legislative leadership like Rep. Alexander on our team we will certainly come back and win in the future!
