I wouldn't doubt it. What the student did is called "insubordination" in schools,and,yes, you can get detention for it.

If correcting a blatant factual error is "insubordination" then the world is screwed.
IF this was real, the teacher should be hung out to dry because they simply do not have the necessary skills to do their job, and the student should be commended for having enough power of conviction to stand their ground when they are right.

however, if correcting a blatant factual error with a blatant and overt disrespect for the person being corrected is to be commended, the world will be just as screwed in my opinion.
