When I was growing up, you were punished in school by being forced to stay and clean up the school. You didn't go home until you were done, or it got too dark to see.

I think it goes on their permanent record, so colleges will see it and the student will look less attractive.

Well yeah, but since when does a kid nowadays care about that?

Lol there are still gunners out there who want to make something of themselves, instead of buying Starbucks and texting for the rest of their days.

But since when do those kids get suspensions? Most of them don't, and those that do dont get them that often.
reply

That's the point. The gunners care about school, so they don't get suspended. So suspension is still a punishment to some even if it is not to others.

To keep them there however, is a punishment to those who want to learn and have a "normal" life in the school.

Not really a touche... I don't put that out there for that reason, but the fact that we can't discipline douchebag "school attendees" and can't send them home either are why so many students do not get a proper education.

Technical answer: That is a tradition that started centuries ago as a punishment for kids who WANTED to be in school. Most kids, if they had the option, was manual labor all day, or go to school. Being suspended was a true punishment (sometimes). Now, the justification is that if the kid is sent home, then the parents must watch them, but this is with the assumption that parents want to, or even would (or even have to). But when you have a system that works for the industrial revolution, but still profits old money, you have a failed system. The answer: follow the money.

It isn't really. It is more of a message to the student and to the parents. It is like a 3 stage disciplinary process for work. 1. Verbal warning, 2. Written warning on file, 3. Fired. For School. 1.Sent to Principal, 2.Suspension, 3.Expulsion.

Sadly, it seems like the message never gets through to either...

Yes. It only works on the kids who care about school in the first place. Most who get put on suspensions do not.

Because of all the work they have to make up when they go back.

Since when do the kids that get suspended do that much work anyways? Besides, they have to do the work at home, not at school when they get back

You have to do classwork in order to understand the homework. It's very difficult to teach yourself the material.
reply

And that's (usually) what parents are for. Also google. Besides, they usually send the homework and classwork home.

Parents are usually busy at work and the videos on YouTube usually cover different material than in class on a similar subject.
reply

Your typical parent does not work all day, they usually have time for their kid. And YouTube is not the only resource for finding stuff. There are plenty of other sites that teach you what you need to know.

It's not whether or not they're in School. It's what their Parents will do to them when they find out about it.

The public schools (in poorer neighborhoods) don't allocate their resources properly, and try to send the kid through like a conveyor belt. The kid may be struggling in school, and some parents can't afford a tutor. It's a sad reality that good public schools with excellent teachers and extracurricular opportunities are only reserved for those who live in expensive neighborhoods (who give the school money with private donations).

However, when a economically challenged kid does something great, the media goes all out on him. That was the case when a student in a working class suburb of LA got a perfect score on his AP Calc exam.
reply

If you're living in the suburbs of LA, you're not usually "economically challenged". And that would've been a big deal no matter what since only 12 (or was it 13?) people have ever gotten a perfect score.

I didn't mean economically challenged, I meant working class.

As I said, still would've been a big deal due to the fact barely anyone gets a perfect score.

I was replying in return to your photo about 1969 vs 2011, and how using parents to get you out of things will only backfire when you go to college.
