my school has done a number of stupid things, to name a few:
implemented passes to the toilet at lunch. except noone knew who had them because the teachers were constantly swapping between themselves and random children. this was eventually stopped.
ban people with lunches from home putting their stuff in the bin, even things like banana peels and apple cores. this was a few days ago, and noone’s said a peep about stopping it yet.
stopped letting people bring their own snack for break and instead made everyone eat fruit, instead of milk, toast and crumpets that they usually offered.
lunchtime groups. this wouldn’t be too bad if every group was a disorganised mess and half the people didn’t know what group they were in. plus, you had to sit at a set table and was never able to sit near your friends. again, this stopped after a while because noone liked it.
you had to be escorted to the toilets by another pupil if you went during class- this made sense slightly, because at the time there had been boys flooding the toilets and shitting in the sinks. another rule that was eventually stopped.
for every school play, they do auditions two weeks before the actual play at most. then, they pressure you by telling you just how many parents are going to be there and if you messed up once then you’d ruined it for everyone. they also made the shy kids stay up on stage for far too long, resulting in one having to be taken out of the hall because she’d started crying from being nervous.
tldr; teachers are stupid and apparently don’t know how to run a school properly.
