School corporal punishment is currently legal in 19 states, and over 160,000 children in these states are subject to corporal punishment in schools each year.

Supplee, Lauren H.; Metz, Allison – Society for Research in Child Development, 2014
Despite a robust body of evidence of effectiveness of social programs, few evidence-based programs have been scaled for population-level improvement in social problems.
