Zero Tolerance, by Claudia Mills
Mills remains one of my favorite writers of traditional middle readers. The particular subject is topical and handled well, with little sensationalism. Mills articulates the way that rigid and unimaginative authority undermines discipline in the long run, and avoids making out any one person as a good guy or a bad guy. This would make a nice book for a group discussion, but is equally enjoyable to read on one's own.
