Different students learn in different ways

I read Ed Greenspan’s letter, “Focus on Discipline to Fix Schools” and Scott Krivitsky’s letter, “Help Students Grow” in last week’s Bay News. I do understand, Mr. Greenspan, that getting disruptive students out of the classroom would make life a lot easier for teachers and for the non-disruptive students who are trying to concentrate on their studies. The question remains, what is best for the confused, disruptive students who are lost and uncomfortable in an ordinary school setting? Dumping them in “600” schools until they end up in gangs or in jail, or helping each of these students find something meaningful that he or she really wants to learn, other than violence? Comment
