Visit www.stadi- umtheatre.com . 8 p.m. Saturday November 17 From page 11 through a bad behavior episode.... No consequence should be given for the behavior because it is a 'teaching moment.' How do we get the educa- tion system to realize that coddling kids is not the answer?" First, the attempt to "understand" the circumstances and motives sur- rounding a child's misbehavior is a form of enabling in which an adult helps a child construct a justification of one sort or another for an offense. The assignment of blame must be avoided at all cost because, theoreti- cally, the perpetrator is as much a victim as the actual victim. He's wrestling with "issues," supposedly. Restorative justice – offender-victim reconciliation – is the logical out- growth of that counter-productive process. Mind you, restorative jus- tice is the default approach even when the victim is a teacher. In the "Brave New World" of the American public school, teachers and students are equals and students rate their teachers based largely on how well they succeed at being liked. Eventually, ideologies run out of new ideas and begin recycling old ones under new nomenclature, and so it is with this supposedly cutting- edge approach to school discipline: it is nothing more than a new spin on the "I'm okay, you're okay" silli- ness that took America by storm in the late 1960s. Combine restorative justice with academic relativism – there being several equally cor- rect ways to spell "alphabet," for example (red ink lowers self-esteem, doncha know?) – and the inevitable result is ever-increasing classroom (and intellectual) anarchy. This explains why so many people who were once very good teachers are now working in the private sec- tor, where the meritocracy and com- mon sense continue to prevail, albeit hanging on for dear life.
