Alternative Discipline System THE “ZERO TOLERANCE” POLICY In my opinion, the “Zero Tolerance” policy shouldn’t even exist! This policy is one of the main reasons why students are more likely to drop out or go to jail. It doesn’t really even teach children a lesson about the consequences of their actions rather then punish them and make them less likely to succeed. It doesn't even give chances for those who made a mistake for the first time. It just gives kids punishments and that is what leads them on the road to destruction. Its almost like an adult prison, harsh punishments with very little rehabilitation!
PREVENTING CHILDREN FROM BEING PUSHED OUT OF SCHOOL NO MORE STUDENTS BEING “PUSHED-OUT”!
Communication with Students and Teachers Teachers should have a conference with a student when they feel that that student is slacking or not doing as well as they should. In that meeting, they should ask students how they feel or what's going on that they are acting that way. Teachers should also do their part in listening to that student and what they have to say. They shouldn’t cut students off because often times what the student is saying is the truth. Students shouldn’t be afraid to speak up! If something is going on don’t be afraid to say something to a teacher that can help. Just remember its your education and only you can make it worth it for yourself!
