Talk:Writing lines

From Spanking Art

Personal recollections[edit]

For what it's worth, in the US, I believe the practice of writing lines ended in the 50s or early 60s in public schools. (Can't speak for what went on in the archaic Catholic school system.) I never saw this practice used as a punishment. One of my teachers told us that when she was a little girl (circa 1945-50) she had to write a line in small print covering an entire blackboard that extended the length of two walls. That is the only real-life case I know of. -- Jameslovebirch (talk) 18:34, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
