Hi - my school is soon introducing a new policy which will involve putting a student in a referral room for 24 hours if they don't follow the school expectations. This could be not having a reading book or a pen, calling out twice in a lesson: two infractions and they're out. Behaviour is a problem but these sanctions seem incredibly draconian - at the moment it would mean referring the majority in my classes. I realise that most will catch on quickly enough and will (hopefully) reform - but what about students with more deep-rooted behaviour issues? I'm not making excuses for poor behaviour, but some kids will find it impossible to sit through a 2 hour lesson behaving perfectly all the time. Looking for reassurance, from anyone else whose experienced this, that it does work.
