Two boys (unknown crime) were told to stand up in assembly, had to go to the front where they were shouted at by the very angry Head Teacher. One boy sniggered and was then told he was excluded. Is this normal? Surely there must be better ways of handling it.
DD found the level of shouting and aggression from the Head Teacher pretty scarey tbh.
Sounds reasonable enough to me. I'm sure the Head Teacher had good reason to shout at them.
Perhaps they are known offenders, perhaps they had already been warned of consequences before, perhaps they were being disrespectful. Actually, they were being disrespectful if one of them sniggered at being told off.
Hopefully a lot of other students found it scarey too and will think twice about mucking about in an assembly.

It sounds to me like the boys had done something serious. Were called up to the front to be made an example of and to be told they were excluded and then one giggled.
It sounds a little old fashioned but there is nothing wrong with that. The constant pandering to bad behaviour and Heads who don't want to upset their pupils has created a small section of the student population who believe they are untouchable. Some would think twice if this sort of thing happened more regularly in schools.
