I graduated high school 30 years ago and it amazes me how prison-like schools are these days when I see the stuff that kids today post to the internet, or hear the kids of my friends talk about what school is like for them. My generation had a lot more freedom. What the hell happened? How do they ever expect kids to turn into functional adults if they're not handed progressively more autonomy as they get older, instead of everything at once (except booze) when they turn 18?
Jogging in the hall is sort of inappropriate. However the punishment is way too severe. Fyl, sorry OP
If it were up to me there'd be no moderation; moderation gets you punished. Walking or full on, heels-to-ass sprinting is okay, jogging is not. Silence or bellowing is okay, talking at normal volume is not. Either keep to yourself or someone dies from your violence, any horseplay in between gets punishment as well.
How many times were you caught running? I can't imagine this being normal protocol, but maybe if you did it everyday for weeks despite them telling you not to. Or maybe you were running around smoking a bong, that could do that to you too.
Maybe. But in my school, you can get detention/ suspension for coughing too much in class, having cough drops, leaving class one minute early, etc. I go to a public school and their rules are ridiculous and it's easy to break a rule because we barely know such petty rules exist.
