Should Schools Do Away With Detention?
One school does away with detention and the results are amazing.
A non-profit organization in Baltimore is making a real difference in schools with a new approach to misbehaving kids.
Instead of detention, one school has switched to teaching yoga and meditation.
Kids are being taught how to calm down and deal with their anger instead of just punished with spending more time at school...and it seems to be working wonderfully.
The Holistic Life Foundation sounds like the kind of non-profit organization we could use more of.
Many adults don't really know how to deal with their anger, let alone kids.
Seems like the kind of important life lesson every child could use. And if it could also lower the number of school incidents, detentions and suspensions, shouldn't more schools find a way to do this too?
Would you want to see after school yoga and meditation introduced at your child's school?
