The Little Book of Restorative Discipline for Schools: Teaching Responsibility; Creating Caring ClimatesThe Little Book of Restorative Discipline for Schools: Teaching Responsibility; Creating Caring Climates

Can community-building begin in a classroom? The authors of this book believe that by applying restorative justice at school, we can build a healthier and more just society. With practical applications and models.
Can an overworked teacher possibly turn an unruly incident with students into an "opportunity for learning, growth, and community-building"? If restorative justice has been able to salvage lives within the world of criminal behavior, why shouldn't its principles be applied in school classrooms and cafeterias? And if our children learn restorative practices early and daily, won't we be building a healthier, more just society?
