Assertive Discipline Program
Lee Canter's Assertive Discipline program has reached over one million teachers
through programs in the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Australia and New Zealand.
Recently, the British Governments Department for Education and Employment endorsed
Assertive Discipline in its report, Excellence in Schools.
This widely used approach to classroom behavior management has been revised to meet the challenges of today's classroom. This positive and proactive approach helps teachers spend more time on instruction and less time dealing with discipline problems.
Lee Canter, the author of this program, reports schools that have implemented the Assertive Discipline Program have reduced suspension rates, unexcused absences, while increasing cooperation, motivation and test score as a result of greater on-task behavior. These outcomes help save schools money, reduce teacher stress levels and empower teachers to build a harmonious learning environment.
