      The influential "effective schools" research of Ronald Edmonds showed that schools do make a difference and that school policies have a significant effect on student achievement. Mr.   Exclusionary school discipline policies once instituted to prevent serious infractions have crept into discipline practices for minor issues. Youth who participated in a roundtable on the subject contend that it limits opportunities to learn and compromises academic achievement; is applied disproportionately and subjectively; and deprives.
