Does your child enjoy a peaceful classroom environment, or is his/her classroom often disrupted by student misbehavior? If it’s peaceful, it may be thanks to Dr. Alan Edmunds’ research on behavior management and a system he and his team have implemented in local Ontario schools.
With many years of experience in teaching and working with children with learning disabilities, Edmunds realized that these students were additionally struggling with classroom misbehavior and teachers’ inability to manage it. “Students don’t learn well when they’re under psychological duress,” he explains. Student misbehavior is also one of the primary reasons why teachers leave the profession.
