NESRI and Teachers Unite’s recent report "Teachers Talk" was highlighted in a recent edutopia article entitled “How to Develop Positive Classroom Management.” The article quotes Sally Lee, coauthor of "Teachers Talk" and executive director of the New York City organization Teachers Unite, as stating, "An approach to discipline that is respectful of human rights and maintains student dignity leads to a school that is inherently safe." Lee continues, "A school in which students and teachers don’t feel safe creates a fearful environment. And where there is a fearful environment, there are low expectations for discipline."
