According to the latest: The Old Schoolhouse has withdrawn all public information about the tour, but intend to carry on 'privately.'
Ho hum. Given the number of pro-smacking people, even within the HE community, that this debacle has flushed out, I suppose this now less publisized tour by pro-child beaters represents but just the tiny tip of an enormous ice-berg, even one of glacial proportions, whose inevitable sweep one would be wise to accept - but this concession seems almost inconceivably sad.
So rather than to concede to hopelessness, and since I am yet to receive any cogent answers to the following questions, I will pose them once more:
"How, in justifying hitting your children, do you argue that someone else should not hit you?"
"How do you convey the doctrine of the minimal use of violence to your children?"
