And so the Pendulum swings back…

Many of us are aware of the negative effects of suspension and expulsion on children. And yet, it happens anyways. I have often been referred to as “the softie” when I advocate for other means of consequences for a child’s actions by the adults who think that suspension is the only way to change a student’s behavior. Unfortunately, it is those adults who usually have the final say.
Zero tolerance policies have increased this behavior in adults, and we hear sensationalized stories of five year olds being suspended for having a rubber band on the bus. Rumor has begun, however, that indicates the pendulum to finally be swinging the other way. Hooray!

    With warm bread and dessert, this crunchy salad becomes
    dinner. This recipe is simple to make and the warm grilled chicken is served
    on a bed of lettuce which has been tossed with a lime dressing.

    Place the dried beans in a large pot or bowl and cover completely
    with cold water.

  5. The cooking method of simmering in a pot with vegetables
    not only gives great flavor to the chicken and keeps it very moist,
    but it also gives the added bonus of the water the
    chicken was cooked in, which of course has been transformed into chicken broth.
    Cover and chill in refrigerator for at least 1 hour before serving.
    If not, definitely try it with any leftover grilled chicken you may have waiting to be used up
    in your refrigerator.
