In response to the 7/30/2014 post, “Your Prioritized Improvement Actions,” a LYS Principal asks:


What is Girls and Boys Town?

SC Response The first and, I believe, the best discipline management system for schools.

Their book, The Well Managed Classroom, is to discipline management what Bloom’s Taxonomy is to instruction.

Every other discipline management system is a modified, and often, lesser version of their original. 

There is a code that you should listen for when discussing Girls and Boy Town. If an educator says, “We tried it and it didn’t work for our school,” what they are really saying is, “We didn’t work at our school.”
