She said that she instead offered the youngster as a ‘sacrifice’ and filmed the spanking to show what was happening at the school

Florida is one of 19 states that still allows corporal punishment in schools, but the practice is banned in Hendry County school district – which includes Central Elementary School.

The tearful mother told WINK News: ‘Nobody would have believed me.

‘I sacrificed my daughter, so all parents can realize what’s happening in this school.’

She says she had spoken on the phone with someone from the school who had mentioned paddling the girl, with a deputy present.But she says that due to a language breakdown she did not understand what that meant.

She says when she arrived at the school she was ushered into the principal’s office, and no deputy was present for the punishment.

She said: ‘My daughter was already in the office.The principal started to scream.

‘There were no cameras.

What are we doing in this place? My daughter and I, alone.’

She added: ‘The hatred with which she hit my daughter, I mean it was a hatred that, really I’ve never hit my daughter like she hit her.

‘I had never hit her.’

The mom later took her daughter to a doctor, and documented red marks and bruises made by the paddle.

She says she is now worried about what psychological harm has been caused to her child.

Self, the clerk, was designated to translate for the mother, but the mother said she failed to do so.

Provinsky told WINK News: ‘That’s aggravated battery.They’re using a weapon that can cause severe physical harm.

‘The child is terrified, she feels vulnerable.There’s nothing she can do in the hands of these adults, who treated her so brutally, savagely, sadistically.’

On the website for the school district, it states: ‘The superintendent shall designate sanctions for the infractions of rules, excluding corporal punishment.’

Neither Carter nor the school has responded to requests for comment.

‘I don’t mind discipline with permission – but not when there’s a language barrier,’ said Ruby Monroe, whose grandson attends the school.

She told WINK News: ‘I worked for the state of Florida for 34 years and we always had an interpreter.’

Corporal punishment is legal in 19 US states: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Wyoming.

But certain school districts in those states have banned the punishment.

In 2011, New Mexico became the most recent state to outlaw the practice.
