And it continues: ". . . This is a subject that separates the men from the boys, quite literally . . ."

What is the meaning of the paragraph ?

thanks for your response and ideas,

  Hi everybody,

  Chapter 5, "Law and Order: Foundations of Discipline", of the book, "The Crisis in American Education -- An Analysis an A Proposal, The Sudbury Valley School," speaking about the basic components of a good law-enforcement system in a democratic school, reads:

  ". . . Third is a sentencing system for people who have been judged, or have pleaded, guilty. Sentences must be clearly spelled out and must have a wide range of severity . . ."

  What is meant by, sentences must have a wide range of severity ?
