Practices and Policies for Implementing Restorative Justice within Schools
Pavelka, Sandra
Prevention Researcher, v20 n1 p15-17 2013
Restorative justice models provide schools with the opportunity to improve school culture by addressing the disciplinary standards and creating a forum for peaceful resolution of conflict and misbehavior. These models seek to determine the impact of the incident and establish a mutual, prescriptive agreement for resolving and repairing the harm caused by the wrongdoing. This article will first discuss the core principles of restorative justice and its applications in educational settings. Then it will examine necessary support systems for successful implementation and the potential challenges that schools face. (Contains 1 table and 1 box.)
