Considered naughty or not performing well academically, two rows of students had to sit an exam outside a classroom at a middle school in Jinxian county, East China's Jiangxi province, Nov 8, 2011. The temperature dropped by a dozen degrees and many students were shivering in the cold.

The incident you cite I do not agree with placing the children out in the cold or other cases punishing children for not doing well in school academically. I think it's enough misery for them making them do the work they will need to do in order to catch up in their academics, that is heart breaking enough in itself.

Separating the children who create a disruptive class environment from the other children who want to learn is appropriate in  my opinion. Which in the incident you cite was the initial objective, not to punish. It simply was a bad choice to place them outside in the cold in lieu of another room that was tempered.

They say 'spare the whip and spoil the child'.

Personally I do not think punishment for poor academics should be the responsibility of the institution, but rather the parents, if at all.

Punishment is necessary to Ss"s performance at school .

For any student at school to study well and get some definite judgements from their teachers and parents is the first step to enter the real society.  Some punishment or rewards may be very necessary for the students to reach their aims at school.  Competitions cannot be avoided out of campus although the bad grades just show the past experience.  There is organized order for shooling and more challenges for adults, morally and institutionally.

A good school may influence a student's whole life, especially for those eager to get advanced education.  Chinese usually think nothing is as important as reading.  As a result the teaching order at campus is quite different from that in the west.  With the one-child policy spreading around the country, the parents and the Ss themselves must have more and more specific requirements for the schools they pay for a satisfying result.   For the compulsary period of time, usually the primary and the junior students, some punishments from few teachers are more often misunderstand by the society. This is also a procedure for both the Ss and the schools to get accustomed to each other.  Anyway the military schools are not what is being talked about here.
