    Speak Up! - View Question #25342


    printer friendly version

    Question:

    Is it legal for a school to punish you with manual labor? For example scraping gum off the ground after school or do they just have the right to have you clean what you did?



    Answer:

    Schools have authority to impose reasonable disciplinary consequences for misconduct.  In-school detention, suspension and expulsion are the three most common types of disciplinary action.  But a school could require service work or mandatory Saturday school as alternatives.  If service work is required, the school may require the student to clean up more than just the mess that the student caused.  If a student refuses to perform service work, the school can resort to an out-of-school suspension.

    I think that is reasonable, espically if you were the one that caused it. When my daughter was in Kindergarten she wrote her name on the wall, they made her clean it up. I do the same thing at home, she writes on the wall, she cleans the wall, the writing and any other marks that are on it. Sorry sounds reasonable.

    I dont think it is right for a school to be able to do that but if they make you do it you might as well cooperate
