Do 'zero-tolerance' policies in education really work?
from By: Patrick Gleeson (commentary)
In principle, zero-tolerance policies in U.S. schools are obvious and almost indisputable. Some kinds of student behavior cannot be tolerated and must result in disciplinary responses that include expulsion. Students can't bring guns to school, for example; can't attack teachers, or sell drugs on campus. In practice, however zero-tolerance policies have become fraught and widely disputed. Here's an overview of zero-tolerance policies in U.S. schools along with a sampling of opinion about their usefulness.
