Nadie_AZ: Some have 'in school suspension' now. You go to school, you sit in a room and do nothing.
The Stealth Hippopotamus: Always wondered about that myself. I came to the conclusion that school isn't there for the children, it's to give a job to people who can't get a real job. When you make their job difficult you got to go.
SilentStrider: Nadie_AZ: Some have 'in school suspension' now. You go to school, you sit in a room and do nothing.now?My high school had that 20 years ago.I resolved never go get sent back there after the first time, because I didn't think I could take that much boredom again.
melewen: Once there was a time that suspension meant a day home with a parent who would actually enact additional punishment....
DON.MAC: The punishment that worked in Catholic school was the paddle. If it was serious, they brought out the "Board of Education". .
Quaker: Same with mine 13 years ago. But we still had out of school suspension as well, which for some reason was considered the more severe punishment by the administration. I was a bit jealous of friends who were suspended out of school and whose parents worked during the day.
bhcompy: 2) The real point of suspension isn't the day-of punishment, it's the mark on your record that goes with you forever
PsiChick: //It doesn't work, TFA demonstrated that,
ReapTheChaos: bhcompy: 2) The real point of suspension isn't the day-of punishment, it's the mark on your record that goes with you foreverReally? Forever? Don't you mean until the end of that school year? If you were a truly unruly student that stuff might follow you until you graduate but that's about it.
iheartscotch: Perhaps, a new punishment system should be devised.Sex = 15 hours "volunteering" to take care of at least 10, 2 year olds.Fighting = 10 hours in the blocksDrugs = have to assist in the anti-drug thingys all yearBullying = 15 hours of wearing a frilly pink dress for guys; 15 hours wearing painfully hideous clothes for girls.Interrupting class = hog tied with duct tape and left for the duration of class./ to be continued
doglover: Because it's illegal to cane children into submission like the Victorians would.
DON.MAC: My sister was suspended for a week for wearing a t-shirt with a duck on it and my parents let her go with friends to the Caribbean for a week as "punishment".The duck ban was started after the German club had some "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil " t-shirts printed with ducks rather than monkeys and people had been making quacking sounds behind the principal for a while.The punishment that worked in Catholic school was the paddle. If it was serious, they brought out the "Board of Education". For some minor issues there was detention with the worst being forced to watch a clock for an hour.
