For people who don't read the article, a teacher has been suspended for making his pupils do push-ups as punishment. Now, that might all seem fine until you learn that the school that this happened at sports college. This has to be one of the most idiotic things I have seen. I think that given that it is a sports college, push-ups are an appropriate punishment.

Thoughts?

That's what I was thinking... Either that or a school that specialises in Physical Education.

Funny, I thought you beat them by being terrorists and guerilla warriors, until they got weak and then you hit them, with ample help form the French. Not sure how Push-ups factors into that lol.

I'm not gonna read the article because it will make even more angry.

My 10 year old stepdaughter has realised that she can get sent home from school by faking illness. As soon as she gets home she's running about, but they still bloody do it.

The other morning she blatanly tried to pull a sickie - running around one second, suddenly feels ill when it's time to leave. We told her that we weren't falling for it, but gave her som calpol just in case and took her to school.

The school refused to take her - obviously covering their backs due to things like this, and I bet there is some EU legislation somewhere that is the cause of it.

So now I have a child that has been clever enough to realise that nowadays if she doesn't feel like going to school, she can get out of it.

Bloody marvellous - it's me who will end up in court if she does not go to school. It's just soo bloody wrong.

Pushups!!!??? I left school in the early 90s and they used to dish out far worse than that. Pathetic.

Ah, but you weren;t using power, you were sharp shooting then running away, so more power should be in your legs

Plus the French were on your side!

Ever hear that joke about the french?

Power does not equal physical strength. And how do you make a joke out of a joke?

I think it's an acceptable punishment in normal schools, let alone sports colleges. =\

Except for females where it could be kind of inappropriate.
#27
....and another thing......why is it that all the schools in my local area that used to have a poor educational record have now been renamed as a 'sports academy'

where the hell did that come from?

So for those who are not from the UK, sports college/academy translates as 'crap school'

Rant over

Girls complain a lot when they have to do it, even though they're usually allowed to do "girl push-ups" (balance on your knees instead of toes). Of course, there's also the possibility of them wearing a skirt, which isn't a bad thing at all in my book.
