What we hope and have seen is that children will form a love of books and a love of ideas in books. We want to empower children to understand that they are valuable …and not proscribed by their circumstances. ~ Jeanne Middleton-Hairston
The foul response to the schools’ multiple disciplinary problems is associated with the administrative authorities, counselors, SROs (School Resource Officers), and law enforcement officials.
Teachers’ Role in Student’s Life
Students have close interaction with the teachers after their immediate family. They spend most of their time with their teachers.
Teachers play a vigilant role in the students’ growth and development. Their decisions and misperceptions could make dramatic changes in a student’s life.
Additionally, their decisions could pose serious effects leading them from the school-to-prison pipeline.
Particularly students of color pushed out of the school and into the criminal justice system.
Educators use to practice such policies and behavior that prefer incarceration over education.
It needs to keep in mind that criminal laws are made to educate the people regarding crime consequences and their solutions.
The school staff is responsible for making the students familiar with criminal scenarios and related responses.
A teacher and student’s bond is so firm and intense that it can beautifully mold the behavior in social ways.
Educational Institutions Staff Needs to Be Aware of the Criminal Laws
The teachers must know about criminal laws before imparting knowledge.
Educational institutions could be an active site for criminal behavior. Thus, the staff needs to be aware of the criminal laws and criminal pursuant.
Students who come across odd attitudes and behaviors suffer psychological and behavioral health issues that have a long-lasting effect on their mental health and social well-being.
The schools must consider effective techniques like call and response, social interaction, motivational activities to bolster self-esteem and confidence among students equally.
Also, mixed heritage students must not be mistreated as they are equitable and worthy like others.
“You are the hope of the future.” ~ Marian Wright Edelman
The academic institutes need to focus on civic engagement, academic enrichment, leadership qualities, and health rather than racial background disparities.
There are viable options to offer the students safer and sound environment than throwing them from the school-to-jail pipeline. Doing this can add better to their lives and improve them more healthily.
There should be child protection services besides the vicious rules and policies having or showing no leniency.
The students who are maltreated are found more likely to commit an offense or misdemeanor than the others. This is one of the most probable outcomes of mishandling and practicing punitive policies and rules.
Also, it is essential to notice that when or if a child is suspected of any misconduct must not be punished before the initial concern of investigating the core consequences and the ill supervision that might be responsible for the incident.
It’s so easy being judgmental that this child is troublesome or destructive. But we don’t bother to think of the reasons behind that; why is it so? We need to assume that they might have any psycho-social problems or family issues that could make them behave eccentric.
