Abstract (Summary)

The study focused on school discipline and climate while exploring differences in perceptions of students, teachers and administrators about school discipline in an urban middle school. The data shows that participants experienced and observed the application of multiple disciplinary practices that resulted in the issuance of student removal from the instructional environment. The use of prevention, intervention and responses to misbehavior are all analyzed. Recommendations for improvement include the implementation of restorative justice and social skills curriculum.
