In theory, holding students to community standards is a nice thought.

In practice, it works for average kids with average misbehaviors. It is laughed off by kids with extreme behaviors. I actually overheard a student who had been sent to the office tell his friends, "Ooo- I got a REAL GOOD talking-to." Yes, kids do try to pass off office visits as nothing, but we actually had kids who physically hurt another come back to class smiling ear-to-ear after having been given a treat or toy.

Some of the practices do work for some students. The emphasis on community-building is good.
