Zero tolerance and the teenage brain | Colin O'neal | TEDxTeachersCollege

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Is zero-tolerance hurting our schools? Colin O'neal explores the development of the teenage brain and uses findings from neuroscience to justify more inclusive school policy.

Colin O'neal first became fascinated by brains as a six-year-old, as he was able to observe firsthand the effects of viral meningitis on his own brain and body. This fascination led him to study psychology at Texas State University, where he earned the nickname "the Neuro-Ninja." O'neal has taught middle school science and high school biology in low income schools, and has worked as a curriculum developer for the Rice University STEMscopes project. O'neal is currently pursuing his master's degree in Neuroscience and Education at Teachers College, Columbia University.
