Take Action – Teachers

Reconsider classroom discipline.

Many juvenile justice cases start with school referrals. Think about alternative approaches to disciplining unruly students, and consider the consequences of getting law enforcement involved.

Talk to school administrators.

Many schools have zero tolerance policies that funnel kids directly into the juvenile justice system. Talk to your administrators and school board about your concerns, and discuss alternate approaches that are more supportive of the health and well-being of students.
