A principal at a school in Alvord, Texas, has ended their tradition of giving students “birthday spankings” after concerns were raised by parents.

Students were traditionally called to the office and given the option of a high five, spanking, or a hug. The principal says that she rarely got students choosing the options other than spanking.

While many parents expressed outrage, some came to the defense of the principal, saying that the “small town” community may seem foreign to people from the big city, but that their children enjoyed the tradition.
