Charity for US Schools


Programs that use external rewards to control and/or imposed punishments teach young people that adults or authority figures are needed to resolve conflicts and problems.

These programs work only as long as adults are present. More importantly, they do not empower young people for self-regulation in their personal lives, at home, in school, at work, and in the community.

Self-regulation is a hallmark of cognitive and social development. Discipline Without Stress teaches self-regulation.

Discipline Without Stress, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) education non-profit charity that improves classroom management, significantly reduces discipline and behavior problems, and prompts motivation for learning. Any USA K-12 school is eligible to receive free materials, consultations, and learn how to use authority without coercion.

Dr. Marvin Marshall is one of America’s leading experts in reducing stress that is so prevalent in work relationships, schools, and homes. He is an author, educator, and international professional speaker (25 countries on 5 continents). He demonstrates how to use authority without coercion so relationships are not adversely affected. His without stress approach is totally noncoercive—but never permissive. He is the author of a number of landmark and award-winning books.

His approach is transformational—as he shares many commonly used counterproductive and ineffective practices—and then replaces them with more effective approaches.

He has taught primary and upper grades and every grade 7-12 in a variety of subjects in urban and suburban schools and communities. He has served as an instructional leader; athletic director; counselor, guidance department chair; high school assistant principal of supervision and control; high school assistant principal of curriculum and instruction; elementary, middle, and high school principal; and district director of education.

He is certified by the William Glasser Institute on Choice Theory, Reality Therapy, and Quality Management. He was a full-time lecturer for over three years at California State University, Los Angeles and has lectured at numerous universities across the United States and internationally.

His was chosen outstanding male student upon receiving his Bachelor’s in Language Arts from California State University, Los Angeles. His Masters in Business Administration was earned at the same university. He was awarded a Doctorate in Education from the University of Southern California and is one of only a handful of California educators who holds a Standard Administration Credential, which required a doctorate and an academic major. His major was economics.
