Too Much Discipline
This introductory chapter argues that much of the new homeroom security prevalent in schools today is a response to fear and general insecurities rather than careful, evidence-based deliberation. Though it is compelling to argue that contemporary school punishment and security is a response to Columbine and other school shootings, such an explanation oversimplifies a complex trend that began long before Columbine. As a result, school discipline policies are overly simplistic reactions to fears that appease demands for harsh accountability. Though they may be well-intentioned, these policies often are not based on evidence of what actually works to help the problems schools and students face.
