        ACTUALLY. This part of what is contained in The Fourth Geneva law of Collective Punishment DOES go towards the general population, INCLUDING SCHOOL:
        Collective punishments
        Article 33. No persons may be punished for an offense he or she has not personally committed. Collective penalties and likewise all measures of intimidation or of terrorism are prohibited

        They are not allowed to punish an individual or group of people for something they didn’t do. This means if that dick in the corner of the room yells and gets you held back, you are allowed to leave and will not get in trouble, and if they TRY to get you in trouble, read this to them!

            Unfortunately under article 2 the use of the geneva conventions is only applicable if the territory of your country is occupied by an opposition NOT of your nation. If your territory is occupied by an enemy, or opposition NOT of your nation, then feel free to shove article 33 in their face because then it is applicable.
            Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely despise collective punishment, I even advocate against it publically, but unfortunately for many article 33 is not applicable.

          Geneva conventions are only for times of war and the one you are talking about takes place in Convention (IV) relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War. Geneva,

          12 August 1949.
          so is it really illegal????

          The Geneva Conventions only apply in Wartime, not in school. “No persons may be punished for an offense he or she has not personally committed. Collective penalties and likewise all measures of intimidation or of terrorism are prohibited” means that if a group member from something regarding war such as squads does something bad then only they may be held liable. The others will not be in trouble.

          This is absurd. The Geneva Convention applies to a country at war. A classroom is most definitely not a country, and teachers are not an oppressive foreign power committing crimes against humanity. If a group of uncontrollable little terrorists makes your day difficult, then you remind them of your class rules. These rules are made not to oppress anyone, but to ensure successful learning. If that means i keep them in then i’Lloyd do it. If they don’t like it, well then they can home school. It is after all a democracy right. So take that article 33 of the GC and shove it.

            The Geneva convention applies to both civilians and soldiers it is not a convention for the good of a house but for the good of the people, so your statement is incorrect it also does not only apply to countries at war it applies to all countries under influence by governmental power or dictatorship and currently applies to america as it is under the influence of a political leader who is not wanted by the majority of the population there for the acts in the Geneva convention are applicable,I can vouch for that with my law degree and job.

            You’re a salty little piece of human garbage, aren’t you?
            If one person does something wron then it is extremely immoral to punnish the whol class for it. Situations to avoid punishing all the class for: 2 pupils talk and you say “if one more person talks the whole class is staying behind”; if 3 people forget their homework and you say to the class “this isnt good enough i expect more from you”; etc. Now please change your bad outdated methods or retire.

      I simply think it sends the wrong message to young people. It teaches them to be co-dependent rather than independent. It says “You are responsible for this other kid’s actions” and later in life, one must wonder if the victim in an abusive relationship learned early on that “This is your fault”.

      For all those who may be confused…I’m just gonna put this here. And those of you saying that it’s only used at times of war…..where are our (USA) troops at fighting? There is a war. Congratulation, your grasp on reality astonishes me.

      Article 33. No persons may be punished for an offense he or she has not personally committed. Collective penalties and likewise all measures of intimidation or of terrorism are prohibited.

      Pillage is prohibited.
      Reprisals against persons and their property are prohibited.

      Under the 1949 Geneva Conventions, collective punishment is a war crime. By collective punishment, the drafters of the Geneva Conventions had in mind the reprisal killings of World War I and World War II. In the First World War, during the Rape of Belgium, the Germans executed Belgian villagers in mass retribution for resistance activity. In World War II, the Germans carried out a form of collective punishment to suppress resistance. Entire villages or towns or districts were held responsible for any resistance activity that occurred in them. The conventions, to counter this, reiterated the principle of individual responsibility. The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) Commentary to the conventions states that parties to a conflict often would resort to “intimidatory measures to terrorize the population” in hopes of preventing hostile acts, but such practices “strike at guilty and innocent alike. They are opposed to all principles based on humanity and justice.”

      Additional Protocol II of 1977 explicitly forbids collective punishment. But as fewer states have ratified this protocol than GCIV, GCIV Article 33 is the one more commonly quoted.

          So my brothers are not over seas fighting a war on terror? hmm well I suppose they could just come home right? I kinda find it ironic you commented near 9/11. Well I suppose you are somewhat right sense we are becoming more and more like a police state. Again…I’m just gonna leave this here for you Bob….I’d love for you to read the last one too so don’t stop.

          On Sept. 14, 2001, the U.S. Congress in effect declared war when it passed the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) as a joint resolution. The vote was overwhelmingly one-sided. In the House, the vote was 420 Ayes, 1 Nay, and 10 Not Voting. In the Senate, the vote was 98 Ayes, 0 Nays, and 2 Present/Not Voting. Rep. Barbara Lee was the nay vote in the House.

          One may argue about the wisdom of this measure and the logic of this measure. One may evaluate the quality of the measure as law. One may argue about the conduct of the military operations under the Executive that has been enabled by this measure. One may evaluate the ramifications for the U.S. government, for the world, and for Americans. Indeed, one may form innumerable opinions from many perspectives about this measure. But one cannot deny that this AUMF set in motion the ongoing war on terror that is being conducted by the U.S. government.

          The existence of the war on terror is prior to the conduct of the war. The conduct is malleable and can take many forms. As long as the resolution exists, the war will be conducted somehow. The conduct is important primarily as it may influence the public’s opinion and the opinion of the Congress that such a war should exist at all, for there is no way to end this war without passing a resolution that ends it. In other words, if the conduct is such that the costs are seen to be vastly outweighing the benefits, then the chances of ending the resolution rise.

          “That the President is authorized to use all necessary and appropriate force against those nations, organizations, or persons he determines planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, or harbored such organizations or persons, in order to prevent any future acts of international terrorism against the United States by such nations, organizations or persons.”

          Sooo ya. we’re at war. with an “organization”.

          The United States has been at War for 222 out of 239 years, which is 93% of our existence. The most recent declaration of War did not come from WWII but from Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi the Leader of ISIS and it occurred on 2012 back when it was still called ISI.

          “As for America the head of Kufr the protector of the cross, I say to it: your war on the Muslims is a loss and soon Insha’Allah you will collapse and declare defeat, so look what have you reaped and what the Mujahid in reaped in two decades of your heading of the war against them. As for your economy it has become almost on the brink of the abyss, and as for your people and soldiers their morale is shattered and their souls are desperate, and the spirit of defeat runs on them until that it become for who wanted to win in the elections to promise to withdraw the armies and stop the war, and as for your security, your citizens travel to any country while they are scared looking about in a state of fear, then the Mujahid in set off behind your armies that fled and have promised to make you taste worst than that you have tasted by Osama and you will see them in your homeland by Allah willing, since our war with you only began now so be ready.”

    I am a senior in high school, and today there were a couple fights in the halls and bathroom involving some students in my class. After the fight was over and they returned to class the principal and security guard walked into the class and took them out. (The class we have are 3 45 min period) this was after our first 5 min break we have in between classes. before our 2nd 5 min break one of the Vice-principal walked in and told us we were not permitted to leave class for the break. i assure you that it was only my classroom that was held back while the rest of the school went to their next class (even tho we were just going to return to the same classroom) I want to know if that was legal for the school to hold us back from our break. to me it felt as if they were punishing my classmate and I for what a few student did.

    It is true that under the 1949 Geneva Conventions collective punishment is considered a war crime. “No general penalty, pecuniary or otherwise, shall be inflicted upon the population on account of the acts of individuals for which they cannot be regarded as jointly and severally responsible.”

    But, this rule does not apply to students soon as they walk into school (property), because they do not have rights as general citizens, or war criminals or common criminals.

    convention four refers to only the persons in war times so everyone can be held back and under the 1949 Geneva Conventions, collective punishment is a war crime. only in war time this is applicable, so technically they cant hold us back because we are at war with north Korea even though it is a cold war and not hot war

    The Geneva convention only applies when the country is in a time of war. It applies to EVERYONE. There are four conventions. 1. Military 2. Sick, and injured 3. POW’s 4. Civilian treatment during a time of war.

    It is illegal to hold a class back because of one person’s actions. It’s a violation of your human rights. Just like not letting a person use the restroom is also illegal and with the right proof, can be considered harassment.

    This has actually been quite entertaining. I’m just trying to find info on collective punishment. My son in 3rd grade has to run with all of the other students for their entire recess because of a few who can’t control themselves. He is pissed, he didn’t do anything wrong. I’ve learned nothing except that there are so many opinions, the kid wanting the info probably already graduated. Then we have the Bob and I forgot his name war… Hehe, war. We must not forget the story above about someones threat to get us back way worse than Osama did. So yeah, besides that last one I mentioned, y’all have been quite entertaining.

    I realize that this law technically only applies to countries during a time of war, but could it also apply if your country is being invaded by a terrorist group? I live in the US, and currently, ISIS is a real concern and a threat to us. In fact, a few months ago, there was a terrorist attack in a town way too close to the town I live in. Does this law still apply?

    I do agree that collective punishment is kind of annoying. Although, using article 33 of the Fourth Geneva Convention is just incorrect. “The Fourth Geneva Convention was the first to deal with humanitarian protections for civilians in a war zone.” Also if that’s not enough, here’s what the UN says. In 1993, the United Nations Security Council adopted a report from the Secretary-General and a Commission of Experts which concluded that the Geneva Conventions had passed into the body of customary international law, thus making them binding on non-signatories to the Conventions whenever they ENGAGE IN ARMED CONFLICTS.” This is not used for schools, but for countries that are at war or under tyrannical government. The Cornell Law School states, “Specifically, it prohibits attacks on civilian hospitals, medical transports, etc. It also specifies the rights of internees (POWs) and saboteurs.” It may be illegal for some other reason, but this ain’t it chief.

    Same here, had kids tell me today I can’t legally hold them past the bell, to which I said, “well when you show me one teacher who has been charged with this and gone to court, then I’ll take it under consideration, otherwise, when I ask you to all be quite nicely so I can make my closing statements, be quite so we call all leave at the bell.” Seems pretty simple, but some people want to act like they’re losing an arm over nothing.

    Well Austin, all that proves is you’re a little bitch that cries and moans when anything doesn’t go his way. I’m sure your parents tell you how special you are everyday (if you’re not an orphen, which would make sense), but trust me assholes like you are a dime a dozen and if you want to see where someone like you ends up watch any video of social justice warriors trying to do shit like this with cops when being pulled over… spoiler, it doesn’t work and they go to jail after getting their windows smashed in. Grow a pair.

    Actually this paragraph has been misquoted. It states that no *protected* persons may be punished. In article 4, protected persons are defined as “ those who, at a given moment and in any manner whatsoever, find themselves, in case of a conflict or occupation, in the hands of a Party to the conflict or Occupying Power of which they are not nationals.” It explicitly excludes “Nationals of a State which is not bound by the Convention”
    Basically the collective punishment thing only applies to prisoners and *not* the general population.

    Can we all just stop arguing please. There is seriously no point in talking about this. Teachers are gonna do whatever the want, and they basically have control of who can or cannot leave their classroom. Even though it doesn’t seem right for a teacher to hold a class in after the bell, they still deserve respect, as do everyone else, no matter the situation, which would bring us to another topic. Politicians still should be given respect, even if you don’t personally agree with them. They are still human. Teachers are still human. We are still human. Respect is a two way road.

    The Geneva Conventions are rules that apply only in times of armed conflict and seek to protect people who are not or are no longer taking part in hostilities; these include the sick and wounded of armed forces on the field, wounded, sick, and shipwrecked members of armed forces at sea, prisoners of war, and civilians.

    You’re welcome 🙂

    More and more I notice that the people who REALLY want the actual, VALID stipulation from the Geneva Convention to be invalid because of war-time or American sovereignty… are mostly women who have obvious authority and validation issues. Meanwhile, there are other women that are getting it right. I don’t care what the other men think, most of them agree with the facts.
    How about this: if you or someone you know is in the teaching profession, and they or you are a woman, either remain silent or actually ask someone who would know without having to look the information up on the internet. If they/you are a teacher, and not a professor at a college, especially not one of law, then just–Be–Quiet.
    You are otherwise not an actual expert, you’re just a ego-stroking, hopeful and repugnant screamer looking for mob sympathy.
    Oh, and in case anyone is wondering, or has even bothered to read the comments, there have already been one or two people who can confirm, based on their actual education and knowledge of American Law, that indeed the Geneva Convention stipulation DOES APPLY TO THE KIDS REGARDLESS OF WAR TIME.
    Don’t be salty because your attitude towards keeping the kids from leaving on time is illegal.
    Time to grow up.

    In response to Daniel, while I agree that unless someone specializes in law from a college or university or has highly educated themselves from actual academic and peer reviewed articles on the matter, I find it laughable that his conclusion about any teacher’s complaining about this have to be women. I am a man, and while it may be hard to believe this, I have no power trips in regards to my career. When it comes to teaching kids of any age one thing I am 100% certain from my own university education is, if you threaten to give out punishments and never do, kids aren’t stupid and will learn you never follow through and walk all over you. While I know, that you have no education about this, as based on your own arguments (which I agree with), that you are not a specialist on education, the idea that every teacher who gives out punishments or keeps kids past the bell are power hungry, jaded, bitter individuals who hate kids or most ridiculously women is obviously due to some kind of personal bias. The real fact of the matter is some kids act like assholes and its part of the job to deter that behavior, so that they can better themselves when leaving entering society.

    So back to this ridiculous subject, its not an issue of law, its and issue of education, otherwise lawyers would be having a field day of suing teachers for this very reason, so to quote my original statement, “well when you show me one teacher who has been charged with this and gone to court, then I’ll take it under consideration, otherwise, when I ask you (students) to all be quite nicely so I can make my closing statements, be quite so we call all leave at the bell”. Lastly, I think you’re statement of, “You are otherwise not an actual expert, you’re just a ego-stroking, hopeful and repugnant screamer looking for mob sympathy” goes both ways. Just because you’ve had bad experiences with teachers or women, based on your own comments, doesn’t mean they weren’t earned by your own behavior so stop being a, “repugnant screamer” and either gain the expertise to go and teach, otherwise… be quiet.

    No my school sells snacks and drinks. Drinks are $1.25 while snacks like gummies are 50¢ and cookies are 25¢ each and certain types of cookies are $1.00 each. And I heard that my school has gotten sued for keeping children after the bell.

    Without teachers, there would be no doctors and nurses. There would be no veterinarians to help our pets when they get sick. Without teachers, your phone wouldn’t exist. Teachers teach so much more than we realize. In a teacher’s classroom, a student learns so much, and in a safe place. Teachers do not suck. Yes, every once in a while there is a mean teacher who nobody likes, but they still teach us something. Respect. We learn that they were given their job because they see something in each and every student. Teachers are not given enough credit for everything they do. Contact me at: amiller2020@hartransom.org

    Don’t take my word for it, but use the sources listed above before you make an argument.

    I take it that (according to sources previously listed) that the Geneva conventions only apply t citizens during time of war of conflict. Again, don’t take my word for it, but use the 3 links previously listed for further research and/or argument

    After reading around 80% of the comments, I still have no idea if this is true or not.
    I only wish to know if the teacher is allowed to hold us (the students) back. Whether it be our own fault or not, is it still applicable? And if so, would it be both recess and ‘home time’ bells? And is it only applicable to specific countries and/or states of agreement? A reasonable amount of my time is spent in the classroom due to my fellow peers misbehaving, thus me getting held back. Do not get the wrong idea, I am not complaining; I only want to eat my lunch.
    Somewhat unrelated but it also seems people have gone a bit off topic in the comments; it adds to my confusion as a student and doesn’t help the situation. Please refrain yourself from using inappropriate language, as it may offend others and doesn’t set a good example for yourself as adults.

    All are wrong, although the law of collective punishment is for all protected people, school curriculums are still allowed to use collective punishment
