Analysis of Student Misbehavior Patterns: Corrective Guidelines for Administrators and Teachers in Alternative Education Programs.
Dix, Jerry Edward; Karr-Kidwell, PJ
This paper presents an analysis of adolescent violent behavior in schools. The paper offers an overview that includes student violence and discipline issues, school law, special services for at-risk students, and programs to enhance the opportunities for successful interventions. The paper is also a vehicle for a new discipline-management guideline system to be implemented at one middle school's alternative education program. The paper focuses on: (1) student violence from the street to the classroom; (2) related discipline concerns in schools and communities; (3) special-education laws and special services; (4) the impact of suspensions, expulsions, and dropouts; (5) student groups that cause major discipline problems; (6) suggested solutions to student discipline problems; and (7) procedures for developing programs that address student violence. It is suggested that alternative discipline programs are vital to every community that has public education. A well-organized alternative program can serve as a public-relations tool for a district interested in attracting those families that will become active in the schools and the community. Guidelines for the Phoenix Program are offered in an appendix. (RJM)
