Has anyone experienced the difference between the two in terms of action that schools can take against kids that are causing persistent problems for others. We're currently in the public sysem and I see a lot of guiding and redirecting for problems, but feel that maybe teachers and Principal are somewhat restricted in how much they can really do to address problems.

I'm talking early primary school here.

Well i know that the public system really has to jump through hoops and loads of red tape to deal with serial offenders.

Our public primary had a big issue a few years ago with an older boy - there was violence toward a teacher and other students involved and it took nearly a whole year of the department trying different avenues to get some resolution which was also hindered by parents not accepting the boys issues.

The boy was excluded at the end of last year, however he was asked to leave 2 private schools with in a year before coming to our public school.

Public schools really do have their hands tied when it comes to extreme circumstances.

    Issues around children learning to read are rarely out of the news. Which is hardly surprising – becoming a successful reader is of paramount importance in improving a child's life chances. Nor is it surprising that reading creates a virtuous circle: the more you read the better you become. But what may come as a surprise is that reading to dogs is gaining popularity as a way of addressing concerns about children's reading.
