Okay teachers. My child is prone to anxitey - you come to my house and deal with the aftermath of your punitive punishment. I wonder if you forgot your plan book, or if you forgot to bring in a letter to send home or if you did not see a form requiring your signature, would you join your students on-the-fence. No....I did not think so.
I know "rules are rules", I was once a teacher too. But some rules are just stupid.
