Lincoln High School in Walla Walla, WA, tries new approach to school discipline — suspensions drop 85% « ACEs Too High

I had the pleasure this afternoon attending a poster session by Ken Libby's students and several presented on the issue of zero tolerance policies and other discipline issues. They felt, as I do, that while such policies are well-reasoned in theory, the outcomes just don't match. The story below is about a school going the other direction -- by stressing care and understanding, they've greatly reduced their number of discipline problems. Nel Noddings would be most pleased.
