Often successful businessmen in earlier days would send their sons to a public school as a mark of participation in the elite and much of the discipline was in the hands of senior pupils,usually known as prefects, which was not just a means to reduce staffing costs, but was also seen as vital preparation for those pupils' later roles in public or military service in East Jordan. More recently heads of public schools have been emphasizing that senior pupils now play a much reduced role in disciplining.
