    We were having the same type of discussion a few years back on the ACLU message boards and I posted this:

    "I don't believe that a teacher should be responsible for class punishments. The teachers' job is to teach. Every day the teacher is confronted by unruly students, usually not the whole class. I believe that the school should have a disciplinarian who can be called upon by the teacher on such an occasion. The teacher can then continue his function without having to complicate the process with disciplinarian functions beyond the realm of teaching the subject at hand.

    If a student becomes confrontational, or unruly, all the teacher has to do is call the disciplinarian in to take the student from the classroom. The student can be dealt with out of the classroom and out of the sight and hearing of the other students, and the teacher can continue with his teaching."

    ?George Will lost all credibility after he drank from the cup of the Reagan revolution. Before then I even bought his book. Now, he's a has been, washed up, old fool who is still trying to reconcile his mind numbing idiocy of supporting Reaganomics.
