Restorative Justice in School Discipline
Since the invention of schools, teachers and administrators everywhere have employed the same procedures for all classroom infractions: A kid who threatened a teacher or got into a fight would basically receive the same discipline as a student with multiple tardies, for example (detentions, in-school suspensions, ultimately expulsion).
But a newer approach to school discipline called restorative justice could is revolutionizing the way teachers and administrators handle punishment. Rather than only administering punishment, restorative justice is based more on talking and listening than on delivering consequences. The technique brings together those who have caused and experienced harm and providing all parties with equal attention.
