here is no doubt that stealing should be punished. But I think that the punishment should depend on the crime.
On the one hand, stealing someone’s money is a very bad behaviour. Firstly, the student whose money is stolen, may need this money. Secondly, the student will be very sad when he/she finds out that his/her money was gone. Moreover it may be very big amounts. In addition, the money should save the student’s life who stole it. In my opinion the student who is stealing should have bad problems such as his/her family’s poverty. Or it may be because of the student’s mental problems. I also believe that schools are responsible from the students’ health. So the school should find out if the student has some problems or not. If there is no reason, they should give the student a suspension. But kicking the student from the school won’t help anything and even they can cause the student become a criminal. And if the student has some problems, the school should warn the parents. And if the parents don’t have the opportunities to put their child into a hospital, the school should pay the bills.
On the other hand, stealing a pen from the school secretary or some pills stolen from the nurse aren’t big crimes such as stealing money. Because everyone needs some pills and the student’s family shouldn’t have the chances to buy that pill. Or buy one more pen to their child. The secretary should wait until the lessons are finished, and find out if the student brings the pen back. If he/she doesn’t, the school should organise some activities about stealing problem, with the student. They shouldn’t give the student a suspension. Again, the school should search for if the student has some problems. And again they should organise and search for a solution. I believe that a warning will work out.
In conclusion, stealing money and stealing a pen or a pill’s punishment should be different. I believe that once the student commits a crime, firstly he/she should be warned about stealing’s bad such as money or a pen or some pills. And the school should solve the student’s stealing problem.
