    Lol!! Scarily accurate.. (even though I wasn't around in 1957!)

    Whilst I was at school (1983/84 till 1993) most of what was done in 1957 still happened (obviously not the cane as it was banned as I started Primary) though some of today's elements were creeping in as I left

    Basically, when I was in school, you arsed about you got into some serious trouble and never did it again and respected the teacher a little bit better (The flying board dusters, chalk and chairs helped there too!)

    Amazing the change in only a few years!

    spot on, i always remember one PE teacher in a lesson who (for some reason) had a pair of nunchuks hung up on the wall. one kid was messing about (this was a PE theory lesson so in class) and the teacher grabbed the nunchuks, ran over the tables til he was stood above the kid, who had now fallen on the floor in a ball holding a plastic folder over his head. the teacher just said "piss about in my class again i wont be so nice".....funnily enough nobody messed about again. good times. like you say, it happened, you learnt, respected the teacher and went on your way. our special needs area was one tiny area where kids who were feeling a little upset went to, not a third of the school where soft furnishings and video games are required as it eases the mental breakdown of someone!

    I do recall a teacher who, if he found you smoking, took you to a room somewhere and made you smoke a 20 pack one after the other or until you were sick..
    Thankfully I never smoked a cig in my life, but I do know someone who did, got caught and never touched a cig after...

    If we smoked in the bushes around the school, we got the cane. If we sat under the staff room window (an out of bounds area) and smoked, the staff would warn us not to leave any litter when we left and then ignore us. Honesty is always the best policy.

    One cocky lad tried that with me, i grab the cig from his mouth and dropped the lit fag butt into his can of energy drink (which they arnt allowed in school either), then took that of him and threw it in the bin, he stood there looking shocked and then a senior management type came and took him to the "conduct room"
