I ended yesterday’s post, “The Problem and the Solution,” with the statement, “It’s not personal… It’s professional.”
Here’s what that means to the administrator who is dealing with a teacher’s student discipline issue. As the administrator, I want to deliver just enough consequence to achieve the desired outcome. And there is the rub. The angry teacher wants the desired outcome to be something between a serious maiming and death. I get that, I’ve too have been angry at a student.
The non-angry administrator wants the student to return to the classroom as a ready to learn, compliant participant, as soon as possible. Which means that the administrator will use a variety of consequences, from mild to extreme, that are designed to return the student, learning ready, sooner rather than later. Translation: Teacher, sometimes all you are going to get is a student apology.
Think. Work. Achieve. Your turn…
