High School Principal Accused of Bending 17-Year-Old Over His Knee & Spanking Her (VIDEO)

OMG 20

hillside highSpanking in school -- again?!? New Jersey high school principal Lee McCaskill is on administrative leave for allegedly spanking a teenage female student -- on her backside. And everyone is surprised. "Didn't see this coming," says school board president George Cook, who describes McCaskill as "very hands on." I'll say!

Of course there will be an investigation to see if McCaskill really did spank a student. But there are multiple witnesses who say they saw him do the deed. He could lose his job over the incident. Or not? 

Witnesses say McCaskill actually sat down in a chair and put the 17-year-old girl over his knee to give her a dose of old-school discipline. Conjure that image in your head and -- shudder. It's kind of creepy.

It turns out McCaskill has gotten a lot of credit for turning around Hillside High. His "very involved" approach has lifted the school's state rankings. So parents are divided on what they think should happen. Some want him fired, while others are like, wellllll, maybe it's not true? 

McCaskill claims he did not spank the student. Meanwhile, the student's mother is defending him! "As for the person in question, I feel in my heart he did nothing wrong." WHAT?!? Is she saying she believes her daughter is telling the truth, but that she deserved to be spanked? Or is she saying she doesn't believe her daughter was spanked? Either way, OMG.

Come on, there are multiple witnesses! You really have to wonder about a principal who bends a student over his knee to spank her. That's astoundingly poor judgment. You would have to have the patience of a saint if you work with teenagers all day -- I'll give him that. And it's possible for students to organize a big lie. But teenagers aren't that organized. I guess we'll have to wait for the investigation. Meanwhile, McCaskill is still on leave.

What would you think if you heard the principal at your school had spanked a student?

This could be a set up.  In general, kids love to do what they want and hate authority.  So its possible that the witnesses are all friends who made up this story so that the place can be less structured. 


it could be true.  This calls for investigation by professionals. Interview all "witnesses".

I agree it could be a set up

If this were described as the method, I would also call for further investigation.  But the man should be suspended while it's being investigated, just to be on the safe side.

I'd spank him back. Right in his goddamn junk. No one touches my children.

Ok wait....she is 17?! Ain't no way in heck I'm about to let my principal bend me over his knee......come on now...she practically grown and let him do this? There is something hinky about this....

You stop spanking a child by the age of ten. It starts feelings that shouldn't be started. Also spanking (not beating, there is a difference) should be done by a parent or parents only. And when it comes to your child, Always take their side until proven otherwise. When you take the side of an adult outside the home, you set up self esteem problems. If your child is proven wrong then it is up to YOU to take care of business. You don't let them get away with wrongdoing either.

I got a board used on  me in school - more than once, at the top of the stairs ,if you fell down the steps you got a 2nd swat  and it was no big deal back then- but if any one ever touches  my kid they better watch out - if you can't spank your kids at home then on one else has that right. And over his lap what was he going for a cheap thrill, sick if you   ask me

I see a law suit  here -

Ya know what? When I was in school kids got spankings with a paddle! Boohoo poor little baby,, NOT! She probably deserved it! Kids are bad now, when I was a kid I was way to scared of the Principle to get into trouble!

I agree Christine. We got it too. My husband got a paddle when he was in high school. He was about 17 as well.  But they had to put their hands on the wall and get it. And guess what? My husband is the most law abiding, hard working, respectful man you would ever want to meet. And he attributes that to his school and parents raising him that way.

Gross, sounds like the plot of a bad porno...maybe the mom doesn't mind some old dude getting off holding her daughter over his "lap" and touching her ass, but the girl might!
