Inspired by the going to toilet during class thread.

What are some shitty things/rules/punishments your teachers gave out when you were in school?

My grade 4 teacher used to yell at students for taking a drink of water while he was teaching. Which was pretty ridiculous imo, it's only water and kids have a right to drink it. He was actually a good teacher and quite well liked but he was a bit of a control freak at the same time.

We used to get canned for forgetting our books or not doing your homework.
Very rarely did anyone forget their books or not do their homework.
I forgot a book once, never again.

In Primary School at various times we had French lessons and Indonesian lessons, both teachers would smack students on the shoulder or back for misbehaving. Sounds like nothing maybe to people who grew up with the cane, but it was notably out of place in a classroom in 2001.

Year 9 female science teacher accused me of sexual harassment. Got summoned to the Principals office, parents were involved and it was a pretty bad situation all around.

In Year 12 Vis Com, our teacher would often let one student head across the road to a 7 Eleven and get a coffee. The classroom was right near an exit so it was easy to leave, but she said she would only allow him to go if he bought her a coffee as well, and that she’d tell the coordinators that he’s leaving school mid class, if he doesn’t.

So one time I needed to take a tinkle but I wasn't allowed out of class...

Nah. More of the "other kids gave me shit. I tried giving it back and that's when the teacher saw it. Bitch accused me of picking on others."

when I was in year 9 and getting beat up on a daily basis, I got punched in the back of the head one day randomly in class which knocked me out. I got 2 days detention for this because "I must have done something in order to have this happen"

The mentality of some of the older generations... Don't problem solve, just assume.

Thought of another one. I once had a verbal stoush with another classmate. She smacked me on my face and i told her to get $/^€£*&.She got no punishment. I had to clean desks. Swearing was less acceptable than physical violence apparently.

One of my teachers rang up my parents and told them I was a lazy kent (true, no argument there). Parents being proper parents and not just 'our child is perfect, you are WRONG!' asked if I was being disruptive (I wasn't) and how my marks were (top of the class, unsubtle brag) then wondered what the big deal was.

some chick made up all this crap about me in earshot of some relief teacher (clearly made-up nonsense) but she thought she was being serious. and actually reported it. :rolleyes: She said straight away that nothing was true so no real harm done.
