Beyond the Discipline Handbook: How Schools Can Implement a Positive Approach to Managing Student Behavior
Sugai, George
Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, v75 n3 p37-41 Nov 2009
Over the past 25 years, Gallup polls have consistently reported that disruptive behavior and discipline problems are some of the top concerns of school staff and community members. In fact, problems with classroom management are among the most common reasons that teachers leave their jobs. In response, many schools are turning to more formal approaches to school discipline and classroom management. One approach is called Schoolwide Positive Behavioral Supports (PBS). About 7,500 schools across 40 states are now implementing variations of Schoolwide PBS. In this article, the author talks about how PBS differs from traditional school discipline and discusses how schools can implement a positive approach to managing student behavior.
