Historical Fact:

T.B. Caswell, headmaster of the Carleton Place school, had occasion to punish some pupils in his room.  Among them was the son of the Reeve Mr. Steele who felt so aggrieved that he undertook to punish the teacher for which he will have to answer at the next Quarter session.

Judging from the number of complaints made to the Board of Education at Carleton Place about the undue severity there must be quite a number of people in that town who are wiser than Solomon for we have his authority for saying “spare the rod”.  We will “spoil the child”.  A parent should rarely side with a pupil in the matter of discipline. –Almonte Gazette
