This program if instituted in all of the schools would lead to a turn around in high suspension rates, and students that are doing the bullying,lack of attendance and poor grades. The teachers of the students that participated in this polit noted that those students showed great strides in their self discipline,personal relationships with their peers and improved test scores. All in all the schools community as a whole benefited greathy from this wonderful program. The time is now! we got to expand this program.
