"The RCM plan works because it is straightforward and easy for staff, students, and parents to understand and, most important, to buy into. Staff members appreciate the research and the paradigm of modeling responsibility. Students identify with the emphasis on responsibility and the use of logical consequences. The RCM plan has been a major part of positively changing the overall culture in our school."
