Student Discipline: Problems and Solutions. AASA Critical Issues Report.
This report summarizes the findings of a survey designed to identify strategies that have been found to be successful for dealing with school disciplinary problems. Data were collected through questionnaires responded to by more than 2,000 school administrators, with supplementary data provided by interviews with 100 administrators and information from state education departments and public agencies. The report begins with an overview of survey results, including brief case studies of two urban school districts that have developed successful programs for improving student conduct. The second chapter is an alphabetized listing of practices used in various school systems for managing student behavior. The following chapters discuss specific issues, and ideas for resolving them. The topics addressed are: (1) school board policies, (2) student conduct codes, (3) student handbooks, (4) students, (5) parent involvement, (6) classroom teachers, (7) inservice education, (8) curriculum improvement, (9) vandalism and violence, (10) smoking, (11) in-school suspension, (12) corporal punishment, and (13) suspension and expulsion.
