Chapter eight illustrates that the combination of increasingly rebellious students and more accommodating guidance approaches complicated the work of educators. Parallel to the curricular revisions that grounded the relaxed education reforms, the student guidance system also underwent significant modifications. The flexibility incorporated into the curriculum was accompanied by a loosening of discipline procedures that has received negligible attention in the research literature. Deterred from employing tactics that had proven effective in the past, middle school teachers struggled to apply yutori approaches to student guidance in settings where their authority was challenged frequently.
