    Try looking up student governance in some search engine. My experience is
    that students establish the rules they wish to be governed by, have
    committees that mete out punishment for rule-breakers, etc. They take it
    very seriously and sometimes are much tougher than faculty would be. Not
    only does it make for a happier school, but develops leadership skills as
    well. Students are often more aware of disfunctional lives than faculty
    members can be. I am out of date, but the high schools in Brookline, MA and
    Hanover, NH used to operate this way and may still.
