A Kat Production
Ronald has appealed to you, but his disciplinary record at the school makes reaching a decision more difficult for you. He has a history of discipline problems, ranging from not completing work to violent outbursts against staff members. He is in counseling with the school psychologist, who has on several occasions upheld his appeals against caning sentences. (Unknown to you, the psychologist has reached the conclusion that Ronald is manipulating the system and determined not to support any further appeals against canings.) Though you and the staff have tried many other approaches, Ronald has not responded well to any of them. Right now, you feel that Ronald expects you to let him off the hook completely. You can sense the impending explosion if you uphold the form master’s punishment or impose an alternative.
How will you deal with this difficult situation?
