Let s say there s a student with a setback in her writing. She s a quiet kid in the class and does well in math, but her writing problem is a major problem. So the teacher keeps her (and other students) from doing the things other students are doing during the fun days until she meets her teacher s criteria. As the year passes, she doesn t meet her teacher s expectations but that student is really trying. As a result, she has to miss break everyday of the week and fix that problem. The teacher probably begins to suspect that the student is not trying at all, so she forces her to sit on timeout wall next to the playground until the time for her timeout is over. The same routine repeats again, rarely the student is let go because she finally did it. The last year of school comes by and everyone takes the projects they finish home. Before the bell rings for the students leave, the teacher comments on the students in front of the classmates. The girl s comment from the teacher was that the girl did the least projects (because of problem) out of the whole class and even compares the amount to a student that is not as intelligent as her.
(This is just a story. Similarities are pure coincidence!)
