It’s that time of year again when principals and teachers start thinking about the new school year, and how to improve classroom management. “This year will be different!” Is a common refrain.
As educators, we know that if only “certain” teachers would be more successful with management, it would make all of us more effective. Principals could spend more time as
educational leaders, and teachers would not have to spend the first two months of school correcting the behavior of the students that came from “that teacher’s class.”
