Zero Tolerance for Deviant Behaviour and Inclusive School
Dr. Robi Kroflič

Summary:  Since 1980s zero tolerance for deviant behaviour (violence, drug abuse) has shown as one of the main orientations of the discipline policy of school in the USA, with this idea quickly pervading our space of education policy. The article analyses the social conditions that have led to this orientation and that prove the neo-conservative basis of this policy. Simultaneously, it investigates its (implicit) theoretical background, the existing findings about its efficiency, and the reasons why this orientation is incompatible with the concept of inclusive school.
