I'm not a fan of that kind of punishment coming from teachers and I know where I live they don't do that.
I do agree however there has to be some kind of control for children that are out of hand. I'm not sure what that might be.
Both of my boys were in the principals office once, and I'll tell you they will never do it again. I didn't have to punish them they were already upset for simply disappointing me. A trip to the office was all my boys needed to straighten up, unfortunately that just doesn't work for all kids.
Respect starts at home, and unfortunately some people just don't understand that.
