The Little Book of Restorative Justice in Education
A fully revised & updated handbook for teachers and administrators on creating just and equitable learning environments for students; building and maintaining healthy relationships; healing harm and transforming conflict.Much more than a response to harm, restorative justice nurtures relational, interconnected school cultures. The wisdom embedded within its principles and practices is being welcomed at a time when exclusionary discipline and zero tolerance policies are recognized as perpetuating student apathy, disproportionality, and the school-to-prison pipeline.Relying on the wisdom of early proponents of restorative justice, the daily experiences of educators, and the authors&’ extensive experience as classroom teachers and researchers, this Little Book guides the growth of restorative justice in education (RJE) into the future. Incorporating activities, stories, and examples throughout the book, three major interconnected and equally important aspects of restorative justice in education are explained and applied: creating just and equitable learning environments; building and maintaining healthy relationships; healing harm and transforming conflict. Chapters include:The Way We Do ThingsA Brief History of Restorative Justice in EducationBeliefs and Values in Restorative Justice in EducationCreating just and Equitable Learning EnvironmentsNurturing Healthy relationshipsRepairing Harm and Transforming ConflictA Tale of Two Schools: Thoughts and SustainabilityThe Little Book of Restorative Justice in Education is a reference that practitioners can turn to repeatedly for clarity and consistency as they implement restorative justice in educational settings.
