Disciplinary practices support learning or tragically undermine children's healthy development and success. Today, too much of disciplinary policy and practice is punitive, unhelpful and `feeds' the high school to prison pipeline. Student Discipline: A Prosocial Perspective is a terribly important book for practice and policy leaders who are invested in making schools a place that support life as well as school success. I highly recommend this book to you. -- Jonathan Cohen, PhD, president, National School Climate Center
Phil Brown and his colleagues provide needed inspiration and guidance for schools that wish to move away from a focus on control and obedience to student-centered concerns like belonging and autonomy. The set of readings lights the path towards creating school cultures that emphasize prosocial development instead of punishment, active citizenship instead of self-protective concern. It's a sure bet for educators! -- Darcia Navrez, PhD, professor, Department of Psychology, University of Notre Dame
A prosocial education approach to discipline returns all educators to the central question of how to guide students toward exemplary behavior. No longer can codes of conduct simply define infractions and penalties. Phil Brown has gathered diverse approaches toward the goal of showing how we can and must aspire to character-building outcomes of our discipline policies and practices, steeped in equity and respect for human dignity. -- Maurice J. Elias, PhD, professor of clinical psychology, Rutgers University, author of "The Other Side of the Report Card: Assessing Students' Social, Emotional, and Character Development"
Phil Brown's new book Student Discipline: A Prosocial Perspective is an excellent resource for educators concerned about discipline and classroom management. Dr. Brown articulates that discipline needs to be looked at as a life-long developmental process and not just a system of rules and punishment. Certainly conventional wisdom has led to failed policies such as zero tolerance with disproportionate consequences, particularly on students of color. His book offers a comprehensive look at a variety of successful programs and the latest research from neurobiology. The book includes eight school profiles with different approaches to prosocial discipline. The educator looking to learn what works best will find much to compare, discuss and digest here. -- Becky Sipos, president and CEO,
