What am I supposed to do when a pupil refuses to follow any and all instructions? Sit in the correct seat. Stop talking. Do some work. The usual normal tasks... I've sent him to our school's naughty room a million times. He doesn't care. His family apparently don't care. He's a pain elsewhere in the school, but I'm constantly under pressure to keep him in the classroom, even though his behaviour clearly falls within the "send to the naughty room" criteria. He drives me batty and takes all my time because he's majorly disruptive.
