Title: Student discipline: a school-wide approach
Authors: Rose, Dennis
Issue Date: 1998

Abstract: Student discipline in school is of concern to educators and members of the public in Singapore. The printed and electronic media has often devoted considerable space to issues related to student behaviour. This paper identifies some of the problems that accompany punishment-only solutions to student behaviour problems. An alternative, school-wide approach directed at the development of responsible student behaviour is described. Such an approach usually begins with workshops for teachers in which they first learn how to support one another through consistently following a set of discipline procedures. They then specify (i) what student behaviour is desired and acceptable, (ii) what student behaviour is unacceptable, and (iii) the consequences for both. There is strong emphasis on encouraging students to develop responsible behaviour through accepting the consistently applied consequences of their actions.
