The U.S. Department of Education has launched a new resource section on their website called Rethinking Discipline…
Teachers and students deserve school environments that are safe, supportive, and conducive to teaching and learning. Creating a supportive school climate—and decreasing suspensions and expulsions—requires close attention to the social, emotional, and behavioral needs of all students.
Administrators, educators, students, parents and community members that visit Rethinking Discipline can find tools, data and resources to:
- Increase their awareness of the prevalence, impact, and legal implications of suspension and expulsion;
- Find basic information and resources on effective alternatives; and
- Join a national conversation on how to effectively create positive school climates.
