Strategies for Restorative Student Discipline – Podcast Episode 179 | Classnotes Podcast 179
Classnotes Podcast (February 13, 2018) Recognizing the negative effects of exclusionary discipline, schools are testing ways of reforming discipline to create a positive climate in schools, which also helps all students learn. Restorative school discipline practices focus on (re)establishing relationships and repairing harm as opposed to just punishment for misbehavior. The IDRA EAC-South helps schools reform their practices.
In this episode, Kristin Grayson, Ph.D., and Paula Johnson, M.A., outline some strategies these schools have applied, such as examining codes of conduct, etc., looking at the level of academic rigor, and understanding the role of implicit bias in expectations.
