Personal narratives put a human face on school discipline issues. The idea is to draw the reader into the actual experiences of
students, families, and educators in what is otherwise a volume of research findings about correlations and data differences

improved by superior alternatives.

To have a deep conversation with a stranger, or with whole groups of strangers and even an entire community, can seem impossible.To talk openly and honestly about our experiences of schooling is equally challenging. Some of our most significant...
