  1. I think its wrong to have the cane or the dunce hat because it will make the children behave badly but other people could think different❕

  2. I disagree with Victorian punishments because it is mean and if a child does something that they should not have done then they should just be told that it is wrong.

  3. In my opinion it is cruelty to punish children with the cane because it will make them bleed badly.

  4. I believe that Victorian punishment is very wrong, because if you got caned you wouldn’t want to come to school, and then your parent or carer might get caned because you didn’t come to school. However it was your fault for getting caned first!

  5. I disagree with the dunce cap because it will make the children behave even worse.

  6. I think its not fair to have the cane and be made fun of for wearing the dunce hat, its unfair.
