so i f-ed up and called a teacher a ****er the other day...jokingly

usually its cool. she doesnt mind the swearing too much but i guess she was in a bad mood

anyway i got suspended for it and in my time at home i was thinking a little...

do suspensions really work? i mean, do they actually teach a lesson at all?

i got in trouble and got an extended weekend out of it...i think i wanna do this more often lol

what are your thoughts?

It might not seem bad in the short term, but in the long run, you're gonna get screwed with grades if you keep doing that. If you're suspended, you can't catch up on the work you missed.

What do your parents think of this, and do you realise your missing out on education and therefore becoming a dumbass?
#5
They are based on the thought that you would get behind in your work and have to work that much harder to catch up. The problem is that most kids nowadays couldn't care less if they ever catch up or get good grades. Also, the kids who do usually care about getting good grades are also the ones less likely to get suspended. So, in a word, No.

I got suspended a few times when I was at school. Never really caused me any problems. I still got offered a place at Cambridge, for example.

You have knowledge of punctuation and grammar. There's a reason it didn't affect you as much. You are smarter.

Where I came from, if you got suspended, you couldn't catch up on the work. The teachers just wouldn't give it to you. If you missed a test due to a suspension, you got an automatic zero on it.

You could dress up like the Joker and run at your teacher with a knife.

That'll get you at least expelled. Then you won't have school for a whole year!

I got suspended for calling my teacher an asshole, also jokingly. In my defense, he called me a jerk. I got suspended for a day. My dad didn't really care though, so it was cool. We even went to the Houston Symphony later to see Eliot Fisk preform. FRONT ROW!

suspensions are a joke. the only thing it does besides giving kids a free weekend is hurting their grades which is not what school is about. instead of suspension they should make the kid write and essay or something school related. If the intent of a suspension is to make a kid miss class to lower grade.. they should just lower the grade and make the kid stay at school.

im a senior this year with easy classes...im not getting behind on any work lol

and also im not really planning on getting suspended alot....i was just thinking

but "do bad things" and "get a day off" dont seem like they go together to me but that what a suspension does


i would much rather get suspended or get a detention or an ATS(stay 3-4 hour after school)....which are both punishments UNDER that of a suspension

in other words: get detention....ship it.....now u get an ATS for skipping detention....if you skip that you get suspended one day

Seeing as I didn't understand a damn word of that, methinks you need to get your ass back in the classroom.

English classes perhaps?


EDIT: Never mind. Anyway I do find suspensions pointless most if the time, especially if those concerned skip school all the time anyway.

You're an idiot. You insulted the teacher, so you deserved it. End of story.
This.

But suspension are useless. You do something bad... and you get a suspension, so you can stay at home? WTF, we all know that people love to stay at home and don't want to go to school. They should make you stay at school longer, not shorter.

Yeah, but it goes on your record if you want a place in a good university or job. One might not matter, but they build up.

In-school suspension is the way to go. All the mind-numbing work of school without the benefit of any other human contact.
