An Examination of the Relationship between Exclusionary Discipline and Academic Success
Tardieu, Greg
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, George Fox University
Schools traditionally have held students accountable for misbehavior with the use of disciplinary measures such as: detention, suspension and expulsion as consequences of breaking school rules. Intuitively, many educators believe that excluding a student from classroom instruction places that student at an academic disadvantage. This study investigated what effects disciplinary exclusion had on students who are removed from their regular educational setting as a punishment. The research examined eight middle school students who received an in-school suspension and then studied the affects upon their grades, attendance and behavior over a six week period. The research showed that suspensions had no significant effects upon the grades, attendance and behavior of the student participants.
