Clip to ScrapBook #4

It's a new buzzword that means make sure the offender gets a say in solving the problem that very often the offender started. This tactic is not a new idea at all. Just a lot of money generating pd and books have been created. It's the new "holy grail."
The problem with this buzzword these days is there are no consequences for offenses nor is there counseling,psychological or mental health support for the offending students.Teachers are left with serious behavior problems that disrupt the classroom all day long. And the district now gets to claim that the suspension rate for minority groups is magically lower now.

If I were a new teacher looking for work I'd be very careful where I agreed to begin my career. The lack of support for the other kids in the class is gone and the serious offender is now in control of the class.
