Canceling fun activities or getting grounded are normal punishments for children who get bad grades. However, making a student wear a sign that reads, “Hey, I want to be a class clown. I’m in 7th grade and got three Fs. Blow your horn if there’s something wrong with that,” is not normal.
Many onlookers honked to support the punishment but others viewed it as an unacceptable and unbelievable punishment.
