But, Be Warned: A Get-Tough Policy Can Be Touchy, Too.
Banks, Dean
American School Board Journal, v170 n2 p24-26 Feb 1983
A district policy adopted in Corpus Christi (Texas) mandates automatic one-semester suspension for students using drugs and loss of that semester's academic credits. Critics fault the program's lack of counseling or alternative academic programs, even for first offenders, and point out that most students expelled are Mexican Americans. (JM)
