Establishing and maintaining an orderly classroom is a primary determinant of teaching success. This booklet presents an approach to school discipline that blends the best features of existing successful programs and current research findings. The publication, written in story form, tells of two beginning teachers who realize that their success depends on quickly establishing good classroom discipline. The story centers around their search for the secrets of successful discipline, which leads them to a middle school principal who 7 years earlier had been hired to turn around a school that was reputed to have students who neither achieved nor behaved. The story describes a system called "Win-Win Discipline" that transformed the school into one recognized for its exemplary academic achievement and discipline. Through interviews with the principal and classroom teachers the five basic steps for establishing and maintaining effective discipline are described: (1) developing a discipline plan, (2) establishing classroom rules, (3) determining consequences for violating rules, (4) recognizing and celebrating good behavior, and (5) involving parents in their children's behavior. The story concludes with a discussion of how to implement "Win-Win Discipline." (LL)

For two years, beginning in 1988, Jonathan Kozol visited schools in neighborhoods across the country, from Illinois to Washington D.C., and from New York to San Antonio. He spoke with teachers, principals, superintendents, and, most important, children. What he found was devastating. Not only were schools for rich and poor blatantly unequal, the gulf between the two extremes was widening—and it has widened since. The urban schools he visited were overcrowded and understaffed, and lacked the basic elements of learning—including books and, all too often, classrooms for the students. In Savage Inequalities, Kozol delivers a searing examination of the extremes of wealth and poverty and calls into question the reality of equal opportunity in our nation's schools.
