    SchoolsImprove #prisonvisits. Interesting idea. Many don’t think of the consequences of their actions. Hence why they end up excluded!

    SchoolsImprove for the odd one it will work but most need therapeutic input & aren’t able to change on their own even tho they’d be scared

    SchoolsImprove Shock tactics seldom work long term. Work on the underlying issues that result in the behaviour. Can’t change on their own.
