Stand attention!

I remember during my basic school days, when we went for morning parade we were taken through some morning parade routine which saw us doing a lot of activities. One such activity was 'standing attention'. This meant that every one had to stand with his or her legs closed together.

I remember on one occasion, a teacher after giving the instruction for all to stand 'attention', realized one girl had her legs apart. He shouted again "attention" but the girl maintained her position, then commanded "Josephine, stand well". The girl answered "I've stood well". Then the teacher said "how about your legs"?. The girl answered "that's how they are".  The girl left the school a few weeks later out of embarrassment.  Do you think the teacher erred?
