The school rules are necessary to establish a healthy, positive environment for each student to grow and learn. But some are difficult to justify and provoke a lot of discussion among the school leadership, teachers, parents, and psychologists.
Great.guru made a list of rules and punishments school’s most unusual and controversial around the world. What seems more strange?
10. Frozen peas
A student from China revealed a photo of his knee after he was subjected to kneeling on frozen peas as a punishment in school. Some claim that this practice is common among teachers and parents in all of Asia.
9. Best friends
The schools in England and in other places are starting to prohibit students to have best friends. Some parents, teachers, and psychologists claim that children grow better integrated, if they have groups of friends over large. In addition no one feels excluded.
Critics argue that having best friends gives you values for life. A study of child development found that those with best friends have better mental health throughout their lives.
8. Dying your hair
The schools in Tokyo prohibit students color your hair. The 57 percent of the public schools of the capital city requires candidates to demonstrate that his hair is its natural color. To avoid students to lie, it is possible that teachers call home for the students to ask for pictures of your childhood.
This is explained by the homogenous culture. There is a great focus on the uniformity, so that a small difference from the norm stands out a lot and brings criticism.
7. “Poverty,“ ”birthdays” and 48 more words
The Department of Education of New York banned the use of several words in the standardized tests issued by the city. Students who are Jehovah’s witnesses may not feel comfortable talking about birthdays, because we do not celebrate. Concepts such as poverty, divorce and disease have also already emerged that can bring back painful memories, or to interact with the family situation of a child.
6. Red ink
We grew up with teachers who marked our assignments with a red pen, a bright color that pointed out all our mistakes. Today, the red ink is prohibited by many schools in Australia and the United Kingdom. Some claim that the red ink can harm the children psicólogicamente, since the color demotivates students or causes them fear and pressure.
Green, pink, yellow, purple and blue are more relaxing and the controls or crosses no longer seem threatening.
5. Raise your hand
The ancient practice of raising the hand to answer a question, depending on a school in Nottinghamshire is useless and has been banned. The director of the school claims that they are always the same, those who raise their hand. This is not encourages and supports the learning of the other members of the class. Now a teacher can select any student to respond to a question.
Some parents argue that now their children are nervous and scared, because it can be chosen when you do not know the answer and lose the opportunity to answer the question that yes, they know.
A high school in Pennsylvania banned the use of spray body Axe after a student was having a severe allergic reaction and was taken to the hospital. This is not the first case. More schools have begun to prohibit the deodorants in spray, as the teenagers are sprayed over your desire to smell good. Allergic reactions and the fire alarms are on the list of consequences of rociamento excessive.
3. Nap time
Students in China may take a nap of 30 minutes to the middle of the day. The teachers believe that a nap can improve memory and provide energy to continue studying. Elementary students can take a nap in the desks and are allowed to bring blankets and pillows. Students of higher level have to sleep sitting up, which often results in a muscular development uneven and cause problems in the spine.
2. Time to go to the bathroom
A school in Chicago limits the amount of times that a student may leave the class to go to the bathroom: 3 in one semester. The director explained to the parents that the students can use a visit to go to the bathroom as an excuse to miss classes.
1. Stop hands
Asia is famous for being strict with their students and give punishment unusual. One of them is to make their students stand on of hands by arriving late or talking during the class. The list also includes doing push ups, running, or keeping your hands in the air. You can even go as far as to give a slap in the face.
