Program Description

A recent article in the New York Times, cited a fact that NYC employs more school police officers than counselers. Accross the country, cuts in education budgets are forcing districts to eliminate counseling services at schools. Students that exhibit severe behavior problems in the classroom are now simply suspended. And when they return, they exhibit the same destructive behaviors, because the suspension has not positively changed the root cause of the behavior.

Our school will use this money to fund an alternative discipline program. This program will give students counseling services when they need it the most. And we will use the program to help all children; instead of simply suspending the most difficult.
