I look back at the various punishments we got as kids for different misdemeanours at school.
And, whilst I don't wish to presuppose punitive measures as automatically acceptable methods where
disruptive behaviour may be the sublimation of an attention, or other addressable, deficit of
whatever kind, or advocate their usage unreservedly, I can't help wondering whether, instead of "100
lines" it might have been worth setting disruptive pupils the task of handwriting the Universal
Declaration of Human Rights for their classmates and themselves.
Maybe it would be a bit much to expect one pupil to accomplish but, where a group of students
persistently collude in class disruption, might it not be worth considering?
