School discipline reform a win-win for schools and students

A long time before I became superintendent of Durham Public Schools, I began my career in Washington, D.C., as a teacher for seriously emotionally disturbed middle school students. I then became principal of a high school for troubled adolescents. These were all children and youth who, somewhere along the way, had become disconnected from their school communities and families. We worked hard to bring them back around. We weren’t always successful.
