Teacher Used "Cone of Shame" to Discipline Teens

Pasco County high school teacher Laurie Bailey-Cutkomp has a unique way to discipline her misbehaving ninth graders: with the "cone of shame".

Now, she's in trouble for treating students like dogs:

In the movie, the character Dug (a dog) wears the "cone of shame" as a punishment for being disobedient.

Bailey-Cutkomp, who reportedly worked previously in the veterinary field, brought a cone into her classes after students asked about them.

I dont think the teacher should be fired for this. This reminds me of the days when they used to make kids wear the "dunce" caps and make them sit in the corner. Teachers have no tools to keep control of the classroom anymore.

A rolled up newspaper might work, as well.
In *my* day, we got a leather strap across the palm, or a wooden ruler across the knuckles. We still managed to survive.
