ZEN DISCIPLINE

In just three years, Carver Elementary went from daily disciplinary issues and dozens of out of school suspensions to a much calmer, joyful atmospere. Using positive incentives and behavioral modifications, the school is seeing success. We visit the ‘scholars’ at the school to see these incentives such a coding, chess and dance in place. In lieu of out of school suspensions, students are doing yoga and talking with a staff member in a ‘reflection room’.

There’s a lot more to education than blackboards and textbooks. Behind the Minds takes you behind the school doors to highlight educational initiatives within St. Louis city and county K-12 schools. Watch for teachers, staff, administrators, and students who will blow your mind with innovative ideas and programs.
