Quotes on Dicipline

Some interesting ways to think about Dicipline in the classroom.

"To focus on dicipline is to ignore the real problem: We will never be able to get students(or anyone else) to be in good order, if day after day, we try to force them to do what they do not find satisfying."
From William Glasser in Control Theory in the Classroom

"The evidence increasingly points to an innate disposition [in children] to be responsive to the plight of other people.... Creating people who are socially responsive does not totally depend on parents and teachers. Such socialising agents have an ally within the child."
By Martin Hoffman (1986)
