Background Hartford Public Schools (HPS) implements exclusionary discipline practices such as out-of-school suspension and expulsion, with 43310 student school days lost to discipline in 2009-2010. This loss of school time fell disproportionately and excessively against Black students, especially males. In the 2009-2010 school year, 52.3 percent of Black students and
Do administrators of schools every see the child's? Does suspension increase dropout rates? Is there ever a since of justice for the child? Since schools first came to be they have always suspended students without questioning or reasoning in a comfortable environment.Although school suspension is way for the child to be isolated and think about what they have done, schools should get rid of school suspension because this makes the student feel as though there voice is being heard in the matter, since the student is in a more safe and cozy environment the student will reveal what happened, this will prevent higher dropout and school suspension rates.
3. Students should know if they don’t do his or her work there would be a price to pay. It was appropriate to keep Nicole in from recess as a punishment for not completing her classwork.
Charters schools are unique in the sense that they are able to mold a system that will be effective and thus lead to successful students. What is needed to create an effective school is debatable and can range from a variety of different things thus resulting in a variety of
Children Matter: Alternatives to Juvenile Detention San Jose Police Chief, Bill Landsdowne, stated that, “[l]ocking up kids is the easiest way. But once they get in the juvenile justice system, it’s very hard to get them out” (Holman & Ziedenberg, date). Detaining youth, in particular non-violent offenders, has more of a negative, long-term impact on youth as well as the community. With the inception of the Juvenile Detention Alternatives Initiative, the use of retribution is being pushed aside for more restorative and rehabilitation efforts. States that have embraced this initiative are finding that not only are the numbers of youth being detained decreasing but that alternatives to detention are providing opportunity for juveniles to become productive members of the community. All this effort without increasing risk to the community and safety issues. More importantly this initiative works in addressing the underlying issues causing delinquent behavior.
Shift from Punitive to Successful Restorative Practices There is a shift in schools happening from using punitive punishment to using restorative practices. This is because, “The criminalization of certain kinds of misconduct in schools has created what is referred to as the “school-to-prison pipeline” or “school to- jailhouse track.” Common adolescent
2. Becky has difficulties getting the attention of her teachers and classmates. 3. Punishment. Mr. Matherson kept her in from recess, shaking his head, and scolding her. I believe there should be some type of punishment for students. If not students will fill like its okay to do anything they want to without getting into trouble over it.
Physical tactics and restraints with jail like disciplinary makes up for future incarceration. Pushing students for the better is different from punishing them till it's felt they will get better. Schools are not fairly punishing students but depriving them of
Most high schools have at least 6 classes a day. So being suspended for one to five school days can leave a student with a high work load and very behind their peers. In many classrooms teachers tend to weed out all the “bad kids” in their class that distract those who are trying to learn. Detention leads to suspension and suspension leads to expulsion. In the journal “Suspended Animation: A Legal Perspective of School Discipline and African American Learners in the Shadows of Brown” by Brenda L. Townsend Walker, shows that African American suspension rates are up 15% and they are receiving more office referrals than any other race. As students move up to different grades teachers warn their peers about certain students who gave them problems in the past. So some students do not receive a fair chance and they are written off in the beginning. Christopher J. Ferguson (2012), the author of “Does Suspending Students Work” believes that students don’t believe suspension is a punishment, they see them it as mini
With mandatory requirements, many detention centers lack the proper educators to educate the youth in detention centers due to the lack of training in educating students with learning and behavior disorders. When “No Child Left Behind” (NCLB) was mandated by the federal government, children in the juvenile system lacked a portion of the state curriculum due to facilities not having the appropriate material such as textbooks, computer software, designated classrooms, and much more. Many delinquents suffer education wise, because of the shortcomings of the facilities they reside in currently. Another issue that contributes to youth having a lack of education in detention centers is due to the teacher of public schools and teachers of detention
In the article “Does suspending students work?”(2010) by associate professor and department chair of psychology at Stetson University, Christopher Ferguson argues that suspending students “may do more harm than good”. Many students get suspended for minor misbehaviors due to the long list of codes and restrictions the school gives. Sending students home, giving them a “free day” for breaking the rules may seem as a reward more than a punishment. Making it seem okay to keep on breaking these rules allowing students to miss more school and overall build a bad moral character and fail.
If a student gets suspended, it teaches them to have no respect for authority, such as security guards, teachers, their own principal and even their parents. Thus, for the disrespect of authority, the student ends up getting suspended. Infractions such as pulling something on a teacher and talking back are results of the Zero-Tolerance Policy. Without the policy in place, students will be able to respect authority, learn that cops aren’t bad and realize that their education is important. Alternative education, such as the ‘Innovative Concept Academy’, are in place to teach students, such are in place to teach students with behavioral problems what they are missing from their primary education. Unfortunately, most states don’t have this and
Does school suspension work? Does it help the students and the school? Does it increase dropout rates? Many schools use suspension as a punishment on a lot of kids, but is it really a punishment? I mean most kids that get suspended don't want to go to school anyways. So why are we just letting them get out of it and calling it a punishment? Although it is an fast solution to the problem for a few days, suspension is not a reliable punishment for the children going to school because students that have been suspended are three times more likely to dropout, it creates an enemy out of the student and the teacher who had suspended them, and it is demonstrably ineffective.
