Help with Listen Feature Help with Listen Feature

“Zero tolerance” refers to school disciplinary policies that set out explicit, predetermined punishments for specific violations of school rules, regardless of the situation or context of the behavior. These arose in the wake of school violence episodes such as Columbine. This resource, Multiple Responses, Promising Results: Evidence-based Nonpunitive Alternatives to Zero Tolerance, is a 12-page research-to-results brief from Child Trends. The brief offers information for program practitioners about three effective, evidence-based alternatives to zero tolerance. (Posted May 2011)
