Have you ever wished you could be Joe Clark? Do you wish you could go into an unsafe, out of control school and just like Joe Clark, bring that school under control and make that school safe?

The lead story on the local TV news was of big fights at one of the schools in the Spring ISD in Texas. These fights and hallway control issues have been going on for several months. The latest fight appeared to get so big and the students so unruly that a policeman felt compelled to use pepper spray.

TV interviews with parents indicated that their children were often afraid to go to school. The news media had found parents with stories about their children being bullied at school.  These parents were hoping and wishing that conditions in the school would improve. Parents also expressed their disappointment and frustration with the school, teachers, administrators, and the school district. They also expressed a will and desire to help solve the problem. Everyone involved in these school situations wants to solve the problem, but no on has the solution.

I understand your frustrations and discouragements. I have been through these experiences and emotions.

There is a way to solve these school problems. Joe Clark turned a tough, out of control, inner-city school into a safe and productive school. I have done the same thing. In the movie, Joe had the support and help of dozens of police officers. Who knows how much help he really had to solve these problems?   I received minimal to no help from school administrators, police officers, or teachers. I started walking the school hallways, using my school discipline plan in August and by December the school was under control, safe, and productive. The school no longer had a tardy problem. During that same period of time, I escorted three students to the AP’s office. How long did it take Joe Clark to bring the school under control? How many students had to be escorted to the office?  I would be willing to bet it took longer and many more students were run through the school discipline system.

I am no super man , but the school discipline system I created and used has superman qualities. The school discipline system is so simple and safe, parents can be invited in to help bring  a school under control. Teachers, administrators, and parents can work together and within a few weeks solve the discipline problems of your school. When a school solves the school discipline problem, that school has take the first step in solving all the other problems of the school.

Teachers, administrators, and parents no longer need to feel hopeless and frustrated about school discipline issues of bullying, tardiness, violence, or safety. Working together, using this school discipline plan, we can all become the ” Joe Clark’s” of our schools.
