Long ago and far away, when I was in elementary school...  
The school had a points system for discipline -- you got points for infractions, and after three points you were sent to the office.

So for example, not having a pencil was one point, not having done your homework was two points, fighting was three points, and so on.

What I never understood, and what no teacher was ever able to explain to me, was why being disruptive in class was a one-point offense, but being inattentive (presumably quietly, since you weren't being disruptive) in class was a two-pointer.

I would like to think that they brought this up at their Faculty Meetings ("this policy makes no sense, we can't even explain it to the students"). But I live in hope.

And, again, this was 35+ years ago (but it clearly made an impression on me!).
