    I was talking with a friend about the kinds of punishments they used to use in school that would be grounds for arrest nowadays.

    My kindergarten teacher used to tape our mouths shut with masking tape if we talked when we weren't supposed to. If you smiled or continued to talk she'd put on lots of tape.

    My lunch lady used to make the boys hold a chair in each arm and yell at them if the chair was lowered.

    I remember the teacher smacking the boys on the butt with a ruler in front of the class.

    My kindergarten teacher also made us sit in a box with a chair in it if were were unruly.

    I remember copying a page out of a dictionary for talking too much.

    I remember writing lines like "I will not push my friend's head into the drinking fountain water" over and over. Do they still do that?

    My mom had to walk around with a piece of gum on the end of her nose for chewing gum in class.

    What did they do in YOUR old school days when you had to walk uphill both ways in the snow with holes in your shoes?

    Wow ... those all look familiar! Did they have a Universal Student Abuse Manual back in the day?
  3. My third grade teacher took away my desk and made me stand in class for two weeks.
  4. In kindergarden I got a timeout of saying poop.

    I thought this thread was going to be about Stanley Clarke.

    But one of my old teachers from school used to lock kids in a cupboard. This is post 2000 aswell, blatant breach of Health and Safety legislation!

    I remember several times, being sent to the back of the class, and kneeling on the floor while holding my arms out straight to the sides, and holding a dictionary up with each hand. DON'T let the dictionary fall or more was coming!

    what the hell did you do?
  9. She didn't think the inside of my desk was clean enough. :rollno:

    I probably would have had to stand for longer if I hadn't broken down and told my parents after two weeks. I was afraid of getting grounded. :rolleyes:

    My teacher picked up my desk and dumped everything inside of it onto the floor.

    I also had to stand in the corner for quite a long time.

    I've probably copied the dictionary three times over, and about a million lines.

    I've been moved to the front of the room in every class i had, and right beside the teacher about 20 times

    I miss school haha

    These both happened to me, but not in the classroom. It was in the back of this guy's van. I wonder if he ever found his puppy.
  13. One of my friends had to stand at the front of the class with his pants around his ankles. The teacher didn't think it was funny that he had pantsed (?) one of the other guys as we were walking into the classroom.

    The same teacher also used to throw white board markers at another one of my friends for disrupting class repeatedly. When he didn't give her the markers back, she threw her shoes at him.

    Is it bad that I'm sharing stories about punishment that I laughed at rather than received?

    Come to think of it, when I cussed out my Chinese teacher in 4th grade I was taken out of the classroom and lectured, then sent to the principle's office. I don't think I ever got any sort of in-class punishment. Yeah, I was that bad...
  14. You owe me a new computer keyboard. Well done. :p
  15. Rough crowd... :crying:

    ..Back on topic, I'm still in High School, so I haven't really faced any fugly punishments like that (although I did have to write sentences once.. that's RARELY ever done anymore though). The worst I've seen is a kid getting kicked out of the class, and the most incorrect by today's standards was calling a kid a smart ass.

    I saw a lot of violence between pupils and teachers at my school.

    One lad got expelled for slapping a teacher in the face, though to be honest she invited him to do so.
