The truth about discipline plans
Conclusions drawn from our research:
- Disciplinary plans and the protocol on the handling of misbehaviour are open to subjective interpretation.
- The consequences doesn’t relate to the offence.
- Offenders learn nothing from the consequences.
- The parents interfere and “save” their children.
- Learners with a positive, respectful attitude end up in trouble just as often as the wilfully defiant learners.
- Learners learn to “play” the system.
- Some school rules became obsolete.
- Learners with behavioural problems are not helped.
- Group punishment is often the only option (but it causes obedient learners to loose trust in the system.)
- Teachers are cautious to discipline as they fear the reaction of parents and do not feel supported by school management.
- An uncomfortable amount of bullying behaviour is reported.
