School Discipline Practices. A Manual for School Administrators.
One of the most difficult and time-consuming set of problems school administrators face each day has to do with student discipline. This manual provides a series of suggestions on ways that successful schools and administrators deal with discipline problems. Models and examples included are intended to stimulate and assist practicing administrators when they attempt to review discipline procedures and practices in their schools. The manual is organized into seven chapters on the following topics: (1) the need for school rules; (2) the need for consequences for misbehavior; (3) the need for conflict management; (4) the need for procedural justice; (5) the need for equal opportunity; (6) the need for violence-free campuses; and (7) the need for drug-free schools. Numerous sample forms such as "Daily Assignment Log,""Weekly Behavior Contract," and "Twelve Ways to Settle Disputes," are dispersed throughout the manual. Excerpts from four Supreme Court cases are included in an appendix: "In re Gault" (1966); "Tinker v. Des Moines Independent Community School District" (1969); "Goss v. Lopez" (1975); and "T.L.O. v. New Jersey" (1985). (MLF)
