The School of Law: “I’m a teacher of the year!”

davis law school district has hired a former prosecutor who is a leading figure in the Obama administration’s crackdown on the use of corporal punishment, and now has to grapple with an internal crisis over its use of “corrective education” that includes a program that has been likened to a torture camp.

The school district was previously forced to remove the term “corrections education” from its website because the department of education deemed it “offensive,” but the school board decided to use a different term instead, “correctivity training,” after an employee objected to the idea. 

The school district’s response to this latest crisis was to hire the former chief counsel of the Obama Justice Department, James B. Bunning, to work on a new “correctivestraining.com” website.

Bunning is a former federal prosecutor and former US Attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, and he’s also a former partner in a firm that specializes in corporate governance and corporate compliance, and a former deputy assistant attorney general for civil litigation at the US Department of Justice.

In his new job, Bunning will serve as a director of Correctivestrain.com, which is “designed to educate and inform parents and educators about the critical importance of the role that parents, teachers, and communities play in our nation’s public schools,” according to the school district.

“We know that parents want to make informed decisions about their children’s education and want the right information available to them,” said Bunning in a statement.

While Bunning has no formal law enforcement experience, he was a top advisor on “Correctivestaining” to the Department of Education during the Obama era, and as the head of the Civil Rights Division in the Justice Department’s Office of Civil Rights, he played a key role in enforcing civil rights laws for the Obama White House, which included a landmark 2010 decision that gave states the right to impose restrictions on the practice of corporally restrained school discipline.

The “correctivist” program is a program developed by the US Justice Department to teach school employees to use the “correctness” concept in their classroom.

It’s similar to the “school-based prevention” program that was first developed in the US for young black girls by the Department’s National Center for Education Statistics, which has since been expanded to schools of all races.

The “education” component of the program has been described as a way for teachers to teach students about the “dangerousness” of corporality and how it’s used as a “discipline,” rather than the “punishment” that the school-based program is designed to prevent.

Students are given the option of being taught about the dangers of corporals punishment in a manner that’s both effective and non-threatening, the “educational” website states.

It’s not clear how many students have enrolled in the program, but according to CBS News, a recent analysis of a sample of school districts that have participated in the “education,” found that the majority of students who received it were white and between the ages of 12 and 17.

As CBS News reports, the school boards of the following districts, in order of enrollment, have opted to use Correctivestein: San Diego, Sacramento, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Oakland, Phoenix, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington, Baltimore, Boston, Detroit, Miami, Indianapolis, Buffalo, Portland, Milwaukee, Denver, Seattle, Pittsburgh, Atlanta, Cleveland, St. Louis, Kansas City, Charlotte, Dallas, Oklahoma City, Memphis, San Francisco, Houston, Austin, Columbus, Alaska, Fort Collins, Arizona, Arkansas, Louisville, Florida, Jacksonville, Minnesota, Mississippi, Minnesota, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Nevada, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Wisconsin, Colorado, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississauga, Montgomery, Tennessee, Tallahassee, Illinois, Georgia, Michigan, Massachusetts, Hawaii, Vermont, California, West Virginia, Connecticut, Delaware, D.C., Iowa City, Texas, Lansing, South Carolina,  Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Tennessee, Nebraska, Alabama, Rhode Island, Wyoming, District of Columbia, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Pitcairn, Georgia, Gulfport, Mississippi, Huntsville, Alabama,
