Apparently only in implementation. They're not recommending doing away with them.

No dude they're totally legit, like this school that just gave a third grader a week's detention for having one Jolly Rancher. I mean, just think of what could have happened if she ate it!!!

Bing:

Quote:
The students surveyed in this study said zero tolerance is rife with problems, including too few security guards; security guards who are underpaid, lazy or corrupt; nonworking metal detectors; and administrators who show favoritism.


Inconsistent punishment-reward systems teach 1) anxiety, 2) low morale, and 3) incentive to game the system.

What's super super fun about the circumstance in practice is that the favoritism often exists as a way to buffer the unconstrained effects of the policy (though it can also be misused in other ways). If districts were somehow forced to avoid 'looking the other way' in any circumstance, the fallout would in my estimation be too high to leave the zero-tolerance policies as stringent as they currently are.

Oh so you mean a REAL zero tolerance policy as opposed to a selectively enforced one?
