A Pe teacher asked a Maths teacher if he could have a couple of Maths text books.

Knowing full well why, the teacher asked anyway and the PE teacher explained that he had a couple of
kids misbehaving in PE and he was going to punish them by making them do Maths.

So he asked the PE teacher if he had a spare football as he had a couple of kids misbehaving in
Maths and he was minded to make them play football instead.

True story.

Well (me again!) this IS discipline in the twenty first century isn't it. Kids mess about at
school and the punishment is to exclude them from school. Which, after all, is what the children
want anyway.
