Our school should always be clean and tidy. There would be nice floors - maybe even carpet - to create a warm and comfortable atmosphere. In order to prevent any dirt from being carried into the building, students are required to store their street shoes in their lockers. They may change into stlippers for indoors. (BTW, that's common in Scandinavia and in many Central European countries.) Would you like that?
Yes. That's a great idea.
Yes. That's a good idea. But it's sufficient to have this in winter only.
That's ok. I don't care.

That would be a reason to choose a different school.

After about 10 minutes - after all classes have been counted - people would be allowed back into the building again. Students would not be allowed to take their bags or outer clothing with them. Of course, they would not be allowed to go to their lockers to change into their street shoes. Would you like that?

In our school it would be important that discipline is kept, so that we maintain a good learning atmosphere. Each infraction would result in a consequence. However, punishments should always be fair and not excessive. At the beginning of each term students would be allowed to pick from a punishment catalogue. Whenever they break a rule, they would have to face the consequences they have chosen themselves. How would you like this idea?
That's a great idea. That would mean that punishments are fair and accepted by the students.
Well, why not?
I would not care.
Punishments should not be chosen by students.
