Still giving detention? Here are 5 better alternatives
from School Leaders Now
From Aug. 30:
All too often, when a student misbehaves in class, they are sent to the front office, an administrator assigns a detention, and the instance gets swept under the rug. The teacher is left assuming that the student showed up for their punishment and that sitting in a quiet place for an hour after school "fixed" the problem. However, more often than not, the detention doesn't work. Those of us who manage the detention hall see the same kids every week, making it clear that repeat offenders are not learning from this discipline practice.
