“School Discipline in Mississippi and New Orleans”
The backlash against no-excuses discipline in high school
A growing controversy over use of the “paddle” to discipline children has a painful racial subtext.
Comments from the Judges:
“Great storytelling, especially in the charter-school discipline piece. Good flow between policy and students’ voices.”
“Both pieces are smart, very readable and explored topics I hadn’t spent much time focusing on. Great work.”
