School Reform

August 17 2007 School Reform Newsletter

Here's the latest article from Kristen Houghton for her School Reform column at BellaOnline Magazine.

Dear Readers,
A recent news report about a tough love boot camp and the injuries sustained by a young girl being "disciplined has prompted me to publish the following article, "Shocking Behavior" in my column this week.

"Most states do not allow any corporal punishment in any form for any reason. But, with written parental consent, the state of Massachusetts has a new form of “teaching” good behavior..."

It is upsetting to think that someone can do this horrible "behavior modification" to a child! Please read-

As the new school year kicks into gear the following articles will address these subjects:
"New School Year-My Teacher Hates Me"
"Resolving Conflict"
"Bad Teachers? Yes, There are Some!"

I hope you enjoy them and gain some insight into how you can help your child during their school years. While I believe that school reform is imperative for our future, the fact is that the antiquated system is alive and well and that is where our children do go for now.

I would love to hear your thoughts and opinions on how we, as parents and educators, can address the business of school reform.

Also, if you would like to see any topic that interests you appear in a column of mine,please e-mail me and I will do my best.

Enjoy the rest of the Summer! Remember you are your child's best teacher!

Kristen Houghton
