It helps because you will learn not to ever do that again. For example, if someone pisses you off and you go to detention, you can learn ways to ignore them or not get mad or pissed. It might be horrible, but don't you find it helps?

That depends on your definition of "work."

It serves to disrespect kids and keep them from possibly more educational pursuits. If that is what you want, it works wonderfully. As a tool for modifying behavior, it is perhaps not an entirely successful choice.

No, it is like torturing. I never got detention before but I know it is terrible! That will make kids more miserable and then some won't want 2 go to school anymore!
