11-Year-Old Girl's Response To Class-Wide Punishment Is Pure Gold (10 Pics)

 We've all been punished for something we didn't do. Especially during our schools days, when collective punishments were the norm. But why punish everyone for the actions of a minority? That's exactly what Mason Cross' 11-year-old daughter thought when she was writing feedback to her teacher at the end of the school year.

The girl, from Glasgow in the United Kingdom, decided to point out that collective punishment isn't just unfair, but could be considered a war crime...

Cross explained that while his daughter loves her teacher, she's just too smart for her age. 


Twitter loved the girl's honesty. 
Some people even want her to run for Prime Minster. 





You tell 'em!

  1. Collective punishment in a classroom is probably even worse than a war crime. It is carried out in a situation which is not even redolent of war against defenseless children , And it is actually meant to intimidate and terrorise into submission.It is meant to intellectually disturb, maim and kill.

  2. "And it is actually meant to intimidate and terrorise into submission.It is meant to intellectually disturb, maim and kill."

    You almost get it...public "education" IS all about submission and
    crushing ANY thought of resistance the child might have. Ponder this quote from a famous "educator" with me...

    The children who know how to think for themselves spoil the harmony of the collective society which is coming, where
    everyone would be interdependent.
