A paddling is typically administered with two or more school employees present. Currently, there is often a maximum of three swats or "licks" or "pops". In the past, paddlings of up to 30  licks were not unknown, especially in rural schools. In order to avoid allegations of sexual abuse, many school districts require that a female teacher be present during the paddling of a female student. For other uses, see Paddle disambiguation.
