i agree with link and ryan. this is probably one of the stupidest thing i have ever heard. the whole situation is hypocritical and moronic. the teacher could have easily used the standard way of punishing the student, rather than causing the child humiliation, which is of course, exactly what they do not want. it just further proves how adults use their power to belittle children. one thing i hate the most is authority abusing their control. besides, if i was in that position, i would be pissed as fuck. whenever im pushed around and told what to do, i do the complete opposite. whats there to say this kid doesnt think the same way?
