A special room in high school, where you go if you do something very severe,

1. Insubordination

2. Get caught cheating

3. Bad-mouthing a teacher

4. Get caught leaving the school grounds before school is over

5. Fighting with a fellow student or faculty.

The student who was in violation has to collect all their assignments from their assigned teachers, and they are not allowed to go to the cafeteria for their lunch break, lunch is to be eaten in the detention room.
I was put in detention for giving my study hall teacher the one finger-salute for being a smart-ass. That was the only time I was put in detention

A punishment used in school in which a student is required to show up before or after school or to stay in during recess or lunch. Detention may occur in a detention hall, on the wall, or in a classroom. As a result of receiving detention students are stripped of their undergarments and are not allowed to wear them again. As a result of detention, students are required to go commando as a sign of their punishment.
The students had detention now they do not are required to go commando.

A place where you get sent when a teacher notices something bad or inappropriated. The best way to get one is to chew gum.
Kyle: Yo David. I just got a detention from Miss Hoffman for chewing gum. So I gave her the finger and got another one.

David: For real? I just chewed 36 pieces of gum in history class and didn't get a detention. I kickass.

Miss Hoffman: Who just said kickass?

David: I did.

Miss Hoffman: That's a detention.

Kyle: Haha. Sucks for you.
