dumb question: was/is Saturday school detention really a thing, or something Hollywood made up?

I've stayed late, even had 3 days in-house detention (sit in a room with other delinquents and study on your own instead of attending class... I'd have opted for that every day!) but never a Saturday.

(Dumb: my big detention was for something I did outside of school, not involving school or classmates. Yet school punished me for it because a classmate told the counselor.)


I'm reading that it's very much a thing in NJ schools. Interesting.
