"The Responsible Classroom Management (RMC) plan really lets teachers teach and the principal serve as the instructional leader. RMC is a brilliant concept that has been tested nationally with results that have cut office referrals by as high as 80% and dropout rates by 50%. Now, principals and selective teachers can use this book with steps for implementation to prepare the entire faculty or even the district in this wonderful program that truly takes students from a stage of entitlement to a real-life world of being responsible for their own actions from day one." -- Chris Lineberry, Principal
"This book goes into great detail on how to establish a schoolwide discipline program and the step-by-step process for introduction and implementation. Involving students and parents are key elements outlined in the book for ownership in the program. I would recommend this book for any school, administrator, or teacher seeking ways to improve schoolwide discipline and effective classroom management." -- Jim R. Watson, Assistant Professor
