Sound Discipline is a leading education equity nonprofit, working with partners to transform schools into equitable learning communities. We employ a variety of social emotional learning models that are science-based, trauma-informed, restorative, and child-centered to facilitate change in the ways adults see and respond to students, and to change systems in schools that perpetuate racial disparities in discipline.
