Discipline in Schools

Charter School Group Gears Up To Lower Suspension Rate

His students often arrive in in the fifth grade about two years below grade level if they've attended an ordinary neighborhood school.

"There's a level of challenge and adversity that some of our students face, so we have to do more as a school," said House. "The school has to be more structured, more stable, more predictable more safe."

House sees disruptive behavior as "perhaps the No. 1 issue" holding back many urban public schools, including those in Hartford, and he draws a "direct connection between dramatically higher achievement and the dramatically higher expectations for behavior at our school."

"Where is the outcry about schools that aren't teaching kids to read?" House said. "We agree that we should be held
accountable for reducing our suspensions, but all schools should be held accountable for educating our kids."
