The past few days have been a whirl wind. On Monday, I was part of a long uncomfortable meeting. At this meeting which felt much like a car sales transaction. The bargaining and negotiating of initiatives which we trying to prove are best for kids and a myriad of other initiatives. Yet, we quickly feel our efforts are a waste of time. If your thoughts and passions do not line up with the auctioneer’s thinking…just go ahead and do the bid away.
On Tuesday, we created a restorative circle and talked about various topics that are deeply serious. Good conversation. I question sometimes the why behind or rational of discipline and when it happens. Should all situations deserve a consequence even if it doesn’t occur at school and does not cause a disruption at school?
