An Alternative Approach to Zero Tolerance Policies.
Ilg, Timothy J.; Russo, Charles J.
School Business Affairs, v67 n7 p43-48 Jul 2001
School officials should adopt no-tolerance policies that require educators' discretion in punishing misbehaving students (based on due process and fundamental fairness), rather than relying on the zero-tolerance approach, which fails to differentiate among different levels of offenses. Even disruptive students deserve due process and appropriate discipline. (Contains 28 references.) (MLH)
