The teacher and principal took this seriously and put a stop to this punishment of the entire class. They were singling the child out who was acting out more making the situation worse and also were giving these 7 and 8 year olds the message that well even though you sit in class and do nothing wrong you get punished as well.
The children asked if they were treated unfairly. Seven and Eight year olds have great minds to speak with. Some felt that they were in trouble for something that they did not do and did not like the teacher and were not listening to her anymore as well because of the
punishment to the entire class. The punishment to the entire class was stopped. The one still sits at the principals office. How we shape young minds at this age.
