"Sea of calm" says teacher

One of the teachers in our Cooma North additive-free trial commented about looking out on "a sea of calm". This is not the experience of many teachers these days.

Students in NSW are being suspended or expelled from public schools at record rates, with the latest figures revealing a 35 per cent rise in the number of times students have been sent home for misbehaving over the past five years.

Almost half of all long suspensions are for persistent misbehaviour while 39 per cent are for physical violence.

Food can be a reason for such behaviour so with an increase in food additives in school canteens and the food supply we can expect an increase in bad behaviour.

See what happens when schools go additive free - a dramatic decrease in interrruptions, suspensions, and noisy behaviour:
