I think it's horrible. IMO it leads the children to believe that some of them are superior/higher ranking than other children in the class, when they should all be equal. I believe the only person to authorise discipline is the teacher...

I think she was being very unfair.
My kids always ask can they write who is being "bad" on the board but I don't let them. I do choose one child to sit next to me on a chair when I'm doing shared reading, and they write the 5 best listeners on a small whiteboard. I would never get them to write "bad" people down.

I am sorry there is no excuse anyone could come up with to make this ok.
It is wrong plain and simple.
if i add all the years my kids had been at school so far (31) I have never seen a teacher give up her responsibilities to a child like that. It is a form of bulling.

Not cool At home i'll let the kids "sort things themselves" to an extent, but real punishment comes down to me, otherwise it would just be unfair.
TBH, your son's teacher sounds like an absolute bish DE, the way she handles things really sucks

Thank you everyone, very comforting to know i do have a reason to feel upset by this. Dh is a highschool teacher he obviously agree's that there is no way at that age that a child would use that power responsibly or fairly.
Looks like i have to organise yet again to go and speak to these people. >_< im curious to know, regardless of their reasons, how they can actually justify this.
Ill be sure to update

Good luck. My heart breaks for your poor kiddo who, not knowing what was going on, was forces to sit with the bully while everyone else played

I get your frustration but rather than going in with an angry attitude maybe best to hear the teachers point of view too and her reasoning for why your son missed lunch and have her explain how the name writing on the board works etc.
