|I suspend students for short periods of time and sometimes exclude them for as long as 10 weeks. I hate having to do this but lack of resources to address the most severe behaviours is endemic and violent students pose too much of a threat. I like the notion of giving back to the community though and have made it a practice to join at least one community organisation in every town I have lived in. Can't say that I've ever had an uplifting experience of the sort described in the article but even a little can make a difference.|
