Zero Tolerance Conversation Guide
Zero Tolerance is a policy that has been used by schools (and other organizations – police, businesses, the military, etc.) to eradicate unwanted behavior. Zero-tolerance policies establish a pre-set consequence or punishment which is intended to be a deterrent from making an infraction. In thinking about our school systems, is this policy working? In this conversation, we’ll ask you to share stories about your experience with zero-tolerance policies and explore the impact on individual lives and communities.
