A New Model of School Discipline

David R. Dupper

Oxford University Press

This chapter describes a new school discipline paradigm that is comprehensive, preventive, and based on enhancing relationships. It argues that school discipline is a complex and interactive process involving a number of school contextual factors. It emphasizes the importance of school connectedness in reducing discipline problems and highlights five school characteristics that are important in assessing the extent to which students feel “connected” to their school. This chapter concludes with a discussion of assumptions and central tenets of this new relationship-based, preventive model of school discipline.
