Tennesseans for Non Violent School Discipline
Tennesseans for Nonviolent School Discipline, formerly known as Tennesseans Against Paddling, was formed in 1988 by a group of concerned parents and professionals who gathered to discuss the practice of corporal punishment in Tennessee Schools. The organization was incorporated in February of 1993. In the year 2000, we changed the name to Tennesseans for Nonviolent School Discipline (TNVSD)and recommitted ourselves to strive even more ardently to achieve our goals. We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) member organization with over 100 members across the state of Tennessee.
