I have noticed many of our teachers are using loss of recess to discipline/punish the students for behavior issues. Often it seems the whole class is missing out on this time and not just the students who were causing the disruption. I am tempted to talk with teachers and principle about other forms of consequences. (trash pick up, walking the fence line outside, push up :-) ....I'm not sure, but this is really impacting my boys view of school. I think the punishment should fit the crime more. What are your thoughts? Any advice or ideas?
Anyone else deal with this one?
