    just a debate really. to be honest i think there is no point whatsoever because it's still fun nothing different really! just a teacher wasting their time! what do you think?

    It isn't supposed to be fun is it? It should be taking away some of your time as a representation of whatever bad thing you did.

    I never got detention :halo:

    I got banned from the playground when I was like, 11. But just mucked about with the other kids that were banned. I guess it is pointless but how else can a child be given repercussions?

    We used to get detention if we were late 3 days a week so I was always given detentions through high school. I hate getting up in the morning ha. But I used to skip the detentions then if you skip them they give you more, but after half term they write off any outstanding ones...I went years never going to detentions, yet being given tonnes. Stupid system and staying late after school isn't going to make me get up early. School is stupid.
