In theory, it's a good idea, but in practice it will usually not accomplish anything useful. More times than not, if a ref is explaining a call, it comes out looking like they are trying to justify what they called. This doesn't help the credibilty of the ref. In adult leagues, the player going to the box either knows exactly why he's going or will deny to the day he dies that he did anything wrong. That's why it's a coaching issue, not the ref's. The ref reinforces the learning by making the call.
