School discipline

Today on Your Call: What should school discipline look like?


  


On the next Your Call,we’ll talk about how schools are dealing with discipline. Every year, 400,000 students in California are suspended, while another 18,000 are expelled. New methods of discipline avoid suspension and expulsion, including one Oakland program called Restorative Justice.  If you’re a teacher, administrator, student, or parent, what is your experience of school discipline? Join us at 10am Pacific Time or post a comment here. What really works?  And what is the overall goal? It’s Your Call with Hana Baba, and you.
