  • We learned about many real cases that the Supreme Court has juged, and the reasons why each side won.
  • What did you learn in school today?
  • Okay! For example, James Ingraham got in trouble for being too rowdy, and as a punishment he was sent to the principal's office, where he was given 20 swats.
  • Oooh tell me about one of them please.
  • Well his bruises were so bad that he had to stay home for 10 days. He and his mother then decided to sue the prinicpal, and other school officials.
  • Oh no! What happened next?
  • The principal and other school officials won the case. The court ruled this way because they felt as if his punishment involved reasonable violence, which does not violate the Constitution.
  • Who won the case then?
  • No, I personally don't. I think that this was a cruel and unusual punishment for a fairly normal issue. I don't think that violence is ever a solution.
  • Do you agree with their decision?
  • Yeah, I feel the same way.
  • This makes me feel lucky to live in an environment where this kind of punishment is not allowed.
