Transforming School Discipline
Learn more about the research design
School climate, culture, and safety are a perennial concern for all stakeholders in schools - including parents, students, teachers, counselors, and school leaders.
It can run the gamut from invigorating to toxic and impact academic and social outcomes for young people.
More importantly, school climate, culture, and school discipline teaches young people what to expect from society and their place in it.
We are a group of interdisciplinary researchers and educators representing a multitude of identities who spent five years listening to and observing school communities in their efforts to move away from punitive and exclusionary school discipline.
