School Climate and PBIS

Posted By: Michael B. Greene on March 2, 2014
 
Professor Cohen provides valuable clarity to what at best has been a confusion about the differences between school climate reform initiatives and PBIS. As he states, school climate is a more inclusive school reform approach (including a focus on social emotional concerns, safety concerns, and fairness). Moreover, the process of school reform under a school climate initiative, one that as Dr. Cohen states, is more inclusive, transparent and democratic than PBIS. Finally, a school climate approach has different philosophical roots, roots that include intrinsic motivation, social justice, community building, and participatory democratic methods rather than a well-informed behavioral rewards approach on which PBIS is founded.
