Discipline...#1 Problem in the Schools? 40 Positive, Preventive Prescriptions for Those Who Care...
Olivero, James L.
The purpose of this paper is to help school administrators look seriously at one of the biggest school problems--discipline. The author examines those factors that seem to cause student misbehavior--factors having their origin in both the home and the school. Believing that the best way to handle discipline problems is through prevention rather than remediation, the author does not discuss punishment such as suspension or expulsion. Instead, he offers 40 preventative prescriptions to help keep discipline problems from becoming so overwhelming that productivity and satisfaction is impossible. These prescriptions fall into three categories: logistics/materials, processes, and programs. The author emphasizes the importance of parent education and participation in solving discipline problems. Descriptions of successful discipline improvement programs in various elementary and secondary schools are included. (Author/DS)
