Dear Mr. Riak:
In response to your query regarding instruction in the use of corporal punishment in our teacher certification program at The University of Texas at Tyler, I offer the following.
Teacher certification programs at The University of Texas at Tyler do not advocate corporal punishment as an appropriate method for student discipline. We do not offer instruction in the use of corporal punishment in our teacher preparation programs.
