An archival examination of the long-term behavioral impacts of Leader in Me within this case study showed a dramatic linear decrease in the number of behavioral incidences in a Chicago elementary school as a school implemented the LiM process. More significantly, data showed that positive changes in student behavior were long-term. These same students from LiM Schools had fewer discipline problems once in junior high.
• 31% overall decrease in elementary behavior incidents within a year of teaching LiM program, continued decrease the follow two years of the study
• 88% overall decrease in junior high behavior incidents once filled with students who had experienced LiM in elementary school.
