A Blueprint for Classroom Discipline. Action Kit #3.
American Education Coalition, Washington, DC.
Discipline is essential to quality education. A blueprint for classroom discipline is presented that is designed to restore discipline in the classroom. The plan calls for the participation and cooperation of parents, teachers, administrators, the school board, and the students. The plan is based on principles such as: (1) school administrators must take appropriate disciplinary action, including suspension or expulsion of disruptive students, so that other students will not be deprived of a quality education; and (2) parents are primarily responsible for instilling discipline in their children and should cooperate with school administrators and teachers in maintaining firm discipline. A question and answer format is used to explain the background for increased problems in school discipline and the actions that should be taken to improve the school environment. Suggested disciplinary actions differ for the elementary and high school levels. Over half of the publication consists of attachments, including articles from two magazines and one newspaper about discipline problems; a model for state legislation on school discipline policy; and a handbook, "Student Rights & Responsibilities with Staff Implementation Guidelines," from Montgomery County Public Schools, Rockville, Maryland.
