Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
It's true some odd punishment ways are still put in practice by some schools. The discipline body administers such punishment despite them being faced out. When the student fails to adhere to the systems regulations, the perceived reason may be noted as rebellion more than just a mistake. The school may feel the student is posing a challenge, and in response, the kind of punishment issued needs to teach others a lesson. This leads to improper punishment and creates more gap between the students and the management.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
