A growing number of school districts nationwide are reconsidering their stance on school discipline -- in some cases choosing to eliminate suspensions or abandon them as punishment for some less-severe offenses. Momentum behind the school-discipline changes, adopted in Chicago, New York City and elsewhere, is driven by the belief that suspensions and expulsions lead to an increased likelihood of having school dropouts. Some educators say alternative discipline methods, including positive behavioral interventions and supports, are more effective.
