The incident you cite I do not agree with placing the children out in the cold or other cases punish ...
separating the children who creat a disruptive class environment from the other children who want to learn is appropriate! i don't agree with you , it makes "excellent" student who are good at academics snobbish , make them ignore most precious thing such as friendship , offering happiness, naivety . those who create a disruptive class environment also have merit that is worthy to learn, such as they are more humorous, they are more modest, they are more active when making friends , activeness is a very important thing.
Children who are disruptive should be sent out of the classroom. But, punishment won't help children learn. Psychology studies show that positive reinforcement is stronger than negative reinforcement. That should be the first resort. I only send children out when they are extremely disruptive (won't stop fighting for instance), and it is only for the period. Then they come back, and we try again. A little boy was always disruptive in my class. I finally said to him that I understood he loved me and was naughty because he wanted attention. He said yes.
We need to be careful that we are not teaching children to be naughty by giving attention only when they are naughty.
