After reading the story of a head teacher bringing in new rules and handing out all-day detentions for not following them, I was wondering what the people of TSR thought about all of this?
Personally I think the head teacher has made a very brave move, and has angered a lot of people, however I think she has done the right thing and might teach these children a bit of discipline that a lot of children nowadays seem to lack. Although some of the rules, like not wearing coats indoors, are a bit OTT.

If detentions were the best way to teach kids things there wouldn't be a need for teachers, just babysitters.

My school had a similar thing at one point, handing out possibly even more detentions than that. It resulted in a lunchtime 'protest' that involved over half the school jumping the fence and going home.
A couple of weeks later, everyone had calmed down and the school was better off for it.
