Danielle, I agree with you 100% - whether my students are in AP or in one of my more "challenging" classes, the rules need to be consistent across the board. Alesia, I have to say that 99% of the time the student WILL come around, however, in the rare case s/he doesn't, then the issue gets referred to the dean or vice principal, a parent gets called, and discipline is given out. And Raquel, meeting kids halfway is really key - especially with the tough kids! You have to be flexible.
