Just saw this thread. Just wanted to say I'm a PS teacher and that is NOT ok! Kids are too immature to make sensible decisions regarding punishment etc. What happens if they just dislike or are jealous of another child and put their name up there?? I hope you went and spoke to the teacher and told him/her how you feel. Very inappropriate in my opinion. There are loads of other ways to give children responsibilities which is obviously what the teacher was trying to do.
