Classroom government for classroom management

Classroom Management 


New Member
Has anyone set up a classroom government to help with classroom management. The students would come up with consequences for misbehaviors post them and then the students would appoint a judge and a jury and decide what to do with a student who refuses to fulfill their consequence.

I've never done this and have never heard of it. While it does sound interesting (I LOVE LOVE LOVE government), I'd be hesitant. I'd be too afraid the kids would use it as a way to bully and target others they don't like.
