It seems that the teacher gave a choice. Go to the table of shame, or wear the clothing of shame. So the choice was, "How would you like to be shamed?"
I probably have odd views about education. They evolved over time. I did not always believe as I do now.
I believe a solution aimed at solving the problem would be better. The problem should be defined as "Something which disrupts the classroom" and not "something which disrespects my authority." The solution should be aimed at restoring a learning environment, and not on punitive action.
Since wearing a cone does nothing to solve the issue of a disruption, and indeed probably disrupts the class further by creating a big spectacle, I don't think the act was designed to restore a learning environment. Rather, it seems like a punitive action.
Motives matter to me. The teacher may be very good, but I'm not sure that the approach was the best. Especially if it was ego-based.
