Student Discipline: Practical Approaches.
National School Boards Association, Washington, DC.
This report covers trends in discipline policies and policy-making and alternative and innovative school programs designed to diminsh behavioral problems in the classroom. The programs range from improvements in a school's physical plant to specific action plans for teachers and options in the curriculum designed to stimulate alienated students. Some of the programs are preventive; others serve as intervention measures. But characteristic of each is an emphasis on identifying and dealing with the root problem, rather than symptoms of the problem. The programs presented are intended as frameworks from which a school system may build a program based on its own resources and needs. The appendix offers sample discipline policies from three different school districts. (Author)
