Teacher sacked for push-up punishment

How times have changed.

A British teacher has been suspended after making his pupils do push-ups as a punishment for arriving late to class.

The Derby Moor Community Sports College, where the unnamed teacher worked, said an investigation was underway and that its “priority is to ensure that students are happy to be in school.”

I’m sure push-ups are not an Ofsted approved punishment but it seems to me to be a fitting punishment at a Sports College.

Mr Crouch my sadistic PE teacher at school would make pupils do push-ups for the slightest infraction and loved every second of it.
