The education system is a way to get children prepared for the real world, though it does not seem to do that very often. Instead, our children come home from school with stories of how the other children belittled them, or how the teacher said something about their learning ability. It is disheartening to hear of a child who cannot feel safe in the school they visit every single day. When they do do something wrong, though, the teachers and school administrators punish them in new, unique ways. Here are ten of the most bizarre school punishments ever.
Kneeling On Frozen Peas
A young girl in China was forced to kneel with both her hands raised for hours on frozen peas, leaving imprints in her skin. Another girl was expelled for taking pictures of this harsh punishment.
Holding Hands While Being Laughed At
After two students in Westwood High School, Mesa, Arizona, found themselves in a fight, the teachers broke things up. Their punishment: to hold each other’s hands for fifteen minutes while the other students laughed at them.
