Cultural Aspects of Point and Level Systems.
VanderVen, Karen
Reclaiming Children and Youth: Journal of Emotional and Behavioral Problems, v9 n1 p53-59 Spr 2000
Contends that point and level systems constitute a powerful culture in education and treatment environments and deprive youth of normative needs. Offers recommendations that move away from these systems and towards practices sensitive to cultural differences. Point counting and record keeping can be replaced with individual goal plans for each youth, which are established collaboratively by youth and staff members. (Author/JDM)
