Compassionate Discipline

“My humanity is bound up in yours, for we can only be human together,” said Nobel Peace Prize winner Desmond Tutu. What does it look like to take a human-centered, whole child approach to classroom management? To emphasize care over control, skill-building over finger-pointing, and prevention over emotional reactivity? Key areas of emphasis in this issue will be proactive approaches to social-emotional learning and strategies to get to the root of—and respond to—challenging behaviors. The goal is to highlight classroom management strategies and programs that promote positive relationships, support learning, and help educators improve overall effectiveness.
