"Rich Korb has a wealth of experience in dealing with the defiant and alienated students who disrupt classes and other students’ learning. This valuable book provides strong support on important cultural changes and student behavior management that will provide an inclusive and engaging school environment for all students."

"This book offers very specific ways a classroom teacher can implement behavior modifications when the school does not have a strong behavior system in place. The detailed, step-by-step methods of implementing the behavior modification provide teachers something they can read and begin using immediately."
