The age-old discussion about how much discipline a child needs is sparked everywhere from the home to the classroom. And for some educators, there has been an ongoing call for more discipline in schools to help make their job easier.

Cinque Henderson was once one of those educators. During his year as a substitute teacher in dozens of schools in Los Angeles County, he noticed that many students lacked a sound discipline structure.

That has him calling for more discipline in schools, which he talks about in his new book, "Sit Down and Shut up: How Discipline Can Set Students Free."
