What is wrong with SB 164 (PBIS)?
This bill passed our Georgia Senate on March 11, 2015. This is a behavior modification program that is being promoted by the U.S. Department of Education. A school can
receive extra bonus points in their school rating score for following this behavior modification program. It is not a local initiative. It seeks to train students through
stimulus-response techniques with origins in communist educational systems. This bill uses the school climate rating as a measure to force this behavior management
program on local schools with lower school climate ratings based on mandated student, parent, and staff surveys collected through the statewide longitudinal data system.
