Trib readers oppose Noble discipline policy, too
Nice to read these letters in this morning’s Tribune – guess not everyone agreed with the paper’s position on Noble:
Here’s a sample:
I find fining students for disciplinary infractions wrong in principle. Critics who call the program draconian are absolutely on target. It is not the list of ridiculous infractions alone; the fines truly set this reprehensible disciplinary scheme apart.
Public schools must take everyone. As demonstrated by many other groups: If we take a selected population, change the rules, give them money and facilities, outcomes increase. Remember that these are not public schools taking all young people. This is not merely school choice but a wholesale change in public education.
Respect is earned, not charged for.
By Jove, I think they’ve got it!
