I loved the idea of the holding the shoes for collateral.

In the areas of this country where it gets really hot lie 110, we have
trouble keeping the shoes on.
My kids would leave them anyway. I have sweat shirts that no one has
claimed that were
left in the room. I think they are embarassed to take them home after
leaving them.

In California you must have shoes on in the classroom.
It is a safety issue and in my class, 38 high school kids working in clay
paint, etc... no one should have their feet unprotected.

Everyday we read about a teacher who does something like tape a child's
mouth shut.
Boy, have I wanted to do that about 1000 times. But I didn't. Little
bells goes off in my brain.
Do I really want to be in court over this child? Do I want everyone in the
world reading how I lost
it after 25 years in the classroom? The answer is no way.

Be careful out there.
