Don't Punish Everyone

Last week, I read a thoughtful post by George Couros entitled "Don't Punish Everyone." In the post, he warns educators to create policies for the majority of students, not the small minority of students who will operate outside of reasonable boundaries.

In all aspects of our lives, we create rules and regulations to "protect ourselves" from the irrational behavior of others. This applies to speed limits, competency tests, and other incredibly fun parts of life.

However, if we know that these rules and regulations only exist for a small segment of the population, do we really need them all? See the video below. What do you think?


  1. Hi!

    Nice video. I totally agree with it. But it is in human's nature to try to create security and safety all around us by making all these rules and regulations.



  2. This cracked me up! Because it is so true!!!
