Is it reasonable for there to be penalty for disagreeing with a rule (notice that there is a huge difference between disagreeing and disobeying)?

Some people threat disagreeing the same way as they treat disobeying, or view it as disrespecting authority. Some even expect you or require you to say or sign that you actually agree with the rules to not get penalized or to be able to be a part of the class or work, etc.

Imagine getting in trouble in school/class over not signing the part on the syllabus saying that you agree with the rules, and you say that you will obey the rules, but that you still disagree with some of them, and the teacher threatens with punishment if you can’t agree with all of them. Then you can ask, “Well, chances are you disagree with the ban on school corporal punishment. How would you like to be fined, lose your right to vote, have to register as a rebel, have to register as an authority disrespecter, or even have to spend time in prison over disagreeing with the ban on corporal punishment. You are not breaking the law by disagreeing, but you can be arrested for breaking that law. This is what I mean by penalizing others over disagreeing. It’s an invasion to an individual’s right to agree or disagree with whatever he/she wants, and it’s literally nearly the same thing as losing your freedom to holding opinions you want to uphold, and next thing could be losing your right to like and dislike/hate what you want. That will quickly turn the land of the free into the land of the enslaved by mentality, where any certain thoughts or preferences or (dis) likings can put you behind bars. How does it feel like teaching all the great values of this nation, then going against it? That just doesn’t seem right and is outright hypocritical.”
