Between discipline and compassion

One of the issues brought up during contact time yesterday, the issue of whether an effective discipline policy improve student misbehaviour and result in a reduction of teacher stress?

Of course, being just a newbie awaiting admission to NIE, I wouldn’t have the authority to answer back to them at that time, but to me,¬† wouldn’t it be more appropriate to develop a supportive organisational climate that enables teachers to cope with the student misbehaviour that confronts them rather than enforcing strict policies ?
