THREE RIVERS, TX (KMOV.COM) - The board of trustees for a Texas school district has approved to reinstate corporal punishment.

According to a report by CBS, the Three Rivers Independent School District, about 75 miles south of San Antonio, approved the plan last week. 

Although paddling has been approved by the school as a form of punishment, only students who have parental permission will suffer the consequences. 

Students will receive one paddling for minor incidents, such as disobeying classroom rules.
