Is it acceptable that a high school teacher forced a student to read in front of the class because she kept talking to her friend?

    He did his job. He did her a favor. She may now become a public orator instead of a gossip.

    Why was she continuing to talk to her friend?  She's in school to learn.  The student should be relieved that she wasn't sent to the dean on disciplinary charges.

    Of course.  It is the teacher's attempt to make sure the student pays attention, by showing the student how to pay attention.  A student is expected contribute to the class, and not detract from it.

    Absolutely.  The student is in a class to LEARN - NOT socialize.  Shame on the student.

    Of course it's acceptable. Why wouldn't it be? It's hardly 'cruel and unusual punishment', is it?

    EDIT to add:

    When I was at school, reading out loud in front of the class wasn't a punishment; it was an absolutely routine part of our lessons. Everyone had to do it in turn. Nobody died. A few terribly self-conscious people didn't enjoy it but they didn't die either.

    Made sure she paid attention.
