Oct 31, 2018 | Legal Developments and News

The non-profit organization Fix School Discipline continues its policy work to reduce what they call “harsh, push-out discipline practices” with positive and productive alternatives. The Mini-Toolkit aims to change discipline practices from all angles, including by way of encouraging educators and students create an action plans and challenge existing practices the non-profit was initiated to address.

The toolkit is released on the heels of an updated report from August 2018 that analyzed data from recent school years on discipline trends, finding improvement but pushing for more. Click here to read DWK’s newsflash on the August 2018 report.
