Paulding County School District
United States of America

Several middle and high schools in Paulding County are disciplining children for sharing appropriate touches with each other, touches like holding hands and hugging. Touching is natural and necessary for life. Well-adjusted children touch each other.

Touch is an accepted expression of friendship and acceptance in our Western society. The school system does not have the right to enforce a no-touch rule if the same touches it seeks to prohibit are readily accepted in mainstream society.

We, the undersigned, call on the Paulding County School District to ban any no-touch rule or policy and, instead, allow appropriate touch between students.
