      It seems that Michael Gove has been at it again with his ideas. This one is punishing children who have been naught at school with exercise including making them run around the school field.

      What are your thoughts? Could punishments like this work?

      i agree with running as its not to extreme. i used to get punished at school with detentions just for getting a spelling test wrong or a math test i even got booted from math just for asking for help

      Wow that is pretty extreme I will admit however some teachers can be really evil sometimes and punish for things that do not need to be punished for.

      Running I agree is not too extreme but if children where made to run around a school field because they where naughty wouldn't some of them see that as fun rather than a punishment?
