Why is a waste of money and a waste of punishment?
How are detentions pricey?
WHY SHOULD SCHOOLS HAVE TO CUT DOWN ON PAPER AND LAY OFF TEACHERS BUT YET PAY FACULTY MEMBERS TO BE IN CHARGE OF DETENTION?
Opinions please :)

I had detention a couple of times (for being late to class and school too many times). I sat in the detention room and the detention teacher and I painted our nails, yeah it wasn't really an effective punishment. I agree community service or actual work would be much better.

Good question. I have never agreed with the idea of in school suspensions or detentions. At least not in the way that they are currently. So tons of kids I have seen end up sitting in the chair all day or after school....doing what? Not school work. They usually miss work and are supposed to make it up but rarely does it get done. Why not be more creative? Harass a girl and get detention? Before your child is allowed back in school have him take a tour of a rape crisis center and talk to a counselor their on the issues women face. Get into a fight? Go to the local DJJ office or detention center to see something along those lines. Or an afternoon sweeping out the classrooms. I know they won't let students use chemicals that clean...but it would be nice if they could clean a few tiolets. A true consequence that hopefully is connected to the reason. :( Too bad it doesn't work that way.
