What can private schools legally do to punish students?
My son is in 7th grade at a small private school in Ma. Today a boy said something dresh in class. )The teacher decided to punish the entire class. O.K. I can deal with that. But, heres the punishment: For the next 4 weeks no one is allowed to talk
, have recess or even get a lunch break. They will have to eat at their desks while doing math or reading. So that means nearly 7 hours sitting in the same seat. I could not do that and don't know how my son will. Can the teacher do that legally? or because its private, can he do whatever he wants?
