Students' initial perceptions of the Noble Street discipline system as implemented in an urban high school
The research question addressed in this study is, what are students' initial perceptions of the Noble Street discipline system as implemented in an urban high school? It explores students' opinions of a Skinnerian discipline system in its first year of implementation in an urban charter high school. In one year, the charter school in this study underwent several major changes in its program, the discipline system being one of the most important. This capstone details several foundational theories of child development and their intersection with school discipline. It delves into different theories of home and school discipline. The author explores effects of reward-punishment based discipline systems on student motivation and students' relationships with teachers. Through evidence gained from student interviews, the author highlights the importance of caring relationships between students, teachers and administrators.
