    In my opinion teachers should implement **** like this into schools to help deal with misbehaviour. Most kids who misbehave won't care if you give them a detention, however if you give the entire class a detention apart from the one who was actually misbehaving then they may end up getting their ass kicked by their classmates causing them to adjust their behaviour. What are your thoughts on this?

    My school did this and the kids who got whole class detentions carried on doing it. It is completely unfair and I've not seen any good evidence that it works. The people who caused the detentions thought they were, at best, a minor annoyance - the people who were most affected by it were the people who would probably be too scared to say anything to the problem individual.

    My experience at school was those most likely to misbehave were also those most likely to be popular or bullies and as such don't care if they cause punishments for those who don't misbehave, because they never reap the consequences. So in short, no. I don't think this will work.
