I Heartily recommend Bill Hoatson's book. It contains wisdom acrrued by a supurb and committed teacher over many years of experience in some of the country's most challenging classrooms. He testifies to the effectiveness of the caring development of self-respect together with goal-directed discipline, an approach he supports by proven strategies with real kids with real discipline problems. Both his writing and his informative lectures are witty, insightful and wonderfully entertaining.

Labaling. In order to get funding for a child with learning disabilities, you have to give them a label, which usually means scarring them for life.......Labeling seems a little too much like the rationale used in Vietnam. "Yes, colonel, if you give me enough napalm I can save the ENTIRE village." Destroy the child to save the child - I'm having a little trouble with that one.
