When I worked in elementary, this worked for me too. Only we made the
disrupters go during their lunch period (recess time) so they couldn't be
with their friends. It really works just like Jan says. But in my middle
school, even if we could find teachers to cooperate, with 43 minute period
and room changes and other chaos, the kids would just not go, and nobody can
make them because they know there are no consequences.....sigh....
