I am thankful to work in a school where admin and most of the teachers are looking for the underlying causes of misbehaviors. You just never know what a child is facing at home if they don't feel like they can trust you or be safe with you.  

I have had a few students in my past that this article reminded me about. I would meet all students at the door in the morning to welcome them and also stop some behaviors that we're extending from home.

I know this is a few years old but I still found it interesting. I feel that some schools have indeed had the pendulum swing from one extreme to the other. Teachers are not getting enough help with handling discipline problems and have no discipline tools left to use. I agree that "zero tolerance was mindless" but students do need to face some consequences for their actions.

“We’re trying to get to the root of the problem instead of just repeating the kinds of things that got ’em to that bad place in the first place,”

This article was very informative. I agree that you must look for the underlying behaviors... you must also take note what happens before the behavior that may be sparking it.
