I would not deal with 35 students in a class, but I do deal with
throwing clay.
On day one it is explained that throwing clay means being sent out of class
until everyone is done with clay. I have 24 years of written assignments
with Scholastic Art magazines. I work it out before hand with the assistant
principle and the offender goes to ISS for the remaining days. I only
had to
use this one time this year.

       I'm from Kansas,  where the Legislature and BOE keep trying 
        to define the term "suitable" because our constitution requires
          the state provide a "suitable" education for all students
                      Only Kansas is flat, not the entire planet.
