The Relationship of Discipline & Academic Performance in High School :
A 15 page paper examining whether higher standards result in better academic performance. Today’s discipline concerns have progressed to that of physical safety, both for teachers and students.

The Relationship of Discipline & Academic Performance in High School :
A 15 page paper examining whether higher standards result in better academic performance. Today’s discipline concerns have progressed to that of physical safety, both for teachers and students.

Homework & Special Needs Students : 6 pages in length. It has long been recognized that special needs students require an additional set of policies with regard to their learning curriculum if they are incorporated into a regular education classroom.

The writer addresses these needs based on empirical studies. Bibliography lists 3 sources. SpecEd.wps
