NEWARK, Del. (PRWEB) April 04, 2018
Centered on his graduate research study of the negative behaviors of students in elementary and middle schools, Dr. James A. Bracy releases his debut book, “Evaluation of the Positive Behavior Support Program on Fourth-Grade Student Discipline Infractions” (published by AuthorHouse).
In this informative and reflective analysis, Bracy examines the implementation of Positive Behavior Support (PBS) program and its effectiveness in diminishing undesirable behaviors among students. Surveys on the PBS program were administered to parents, students and staff. Results show majority of the participants agree that the program has an effective means curbing the number of student code of conduct violations and plays an imperative role towards students with deeply rooted societal problems and for exceptional learners who have a greater need for counseling.
“The implications of this study helped provide an insight into the perceptions of a specific group of faculty members, parents and students on the PBS program. It could also be of interest for parents who want to learn more about PBS program and how it worked in this particular school.”
Through this book, Bracy hopes to encourage educators, administrators and parents to use positive reinforcements to curtail the children’s behavior and lower the suspension rate in schools.
