Dept of Bad Ideas 2

Looks like the UK doesn't have the monopoly of bad educational ideas- in the wake of the news that a British school was going to allow students to say the F-word in class (and reward those who didn't swear), a Florida school has now decided that too many of its students were being punished for swearing- so they are reducing the punishment for the offence.

Gee, I wonder if lessening the punishment is the way to prevent a type of behaviour- or to encourage it?
