Hey, we’ve all been there. Detention. Paying for your various crimes at school by being stuck in a classroom while fellow students experience sweet freedom. An effective form of punishment? Beats me. But it’s tough to deny, it’s a method of discipline that has stood the test of time.
However, one school in Arkansas is out to change that. The Success Achievement Academy in Jonesboro has replaced detention with….
Yoga and meditation.
School officials say the exercise helps students relieve stress and take a greater responsibility for their actions. Schools in Baltimore have been doing something similar since 2016.
Agree? As a veteran of school detention, I would’ve embraced the opportunity to catch a few winks without getting caught…but curious what you think. ~ Jason
