Additionally, with today’s volatile social media climate, school discipline has taken on a whole new meaning. When does a post or other activity on social media rise to a level where schools can and should discipline students for those actions? When does such discipline cross the line and violate a student’s rights under the United States Constitution? When should the school do more?
An environment where your student’s ability to learn is impaired can be damaging to their future. Similarly, poor choices and impulsive behavior may be simply the product of immaturity and not deserving of being shunted into the criminal justice system.
