Parents often refer to the word, ”please” as the magic word, but now a school in North Carolina has banned teachers from using the word. Officials at Druid Hills Academy say the goal is make troubled children behave better. They say teachers have been trained to give concise, clear instructions in a in a format involving movement, voice, and participation. Their method does not leave room for misbehavior, and it honors the children who follow the teacher’s instructions. They say using the word “please” indicates that there is an option, but this technique is more directive and keeps the teacher in the control.—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
