Legal policies that regulate discipline methods used in schools are also reviewed. Suggestions are offered for preparing discipline codes, defining and tracking rule infractions, and disciplining special education students. A resource section suggests publications, policies, and films providing further assistance with school discipline. Chapter notes.
