Zero Tolerance Policy in Schools: Rationale, Consequences, and Alternatives.
Casella, Ronnie
Teachers College Record, v105 n5 p872-92 Jun 2003
Discusses theory/policies supporting zero tolerance policy in schools, including rational choice theory in criminology and national crime policies based on deterrence. Potential consequences of zero tolerance policy implementation are described and shown to involve outcomes similar to those identified by researchers studying national crime policy. Using qualitative data, anecdotal evidence, and related research, the article concludes with suggestions for violence prevention based on a model of restorative justice. (SM)
