Responsibility-Centered Discipline has been designed to help administrators and educators break away from traditional discipline models to a model that creates a responsible climate and responsible students. Most schools fail to understand the systemic changes needed to improve student behavior and the processes needed to reform school climate, improve student effort, and enhance teacher morale. With RCD, educators shift from getting students to do things for external reasons – prizes, punishments, awards, etc. – to helping students take responsibility for their own behaviors. RCD empowers students with the skill of self-control – enabling them to grow and become responsible students and adults.
