Restoring Justice in Schools

Restorative justice shifts the way that a school community treats and views student behavioral issues. When students misbehave, their peers, teachers, parents and the school administrators address it as a community rather than strictly punishing students through suspension or expulsion. A culture of restorative justice helps students to find out what they are doing wrong, why, how it affects others, and how they can fix it.

The Power of Student Protest

When students and young people have organized and demanded change, the outcomes have been tremendous. The voices of youth have had a special role in creating positive changes in revolutionary movements from the 20th century through today.
