Restorative Justice in Schools: Highlights of Research and Practice in the U.S.

Center researchers recently presented a webinar highlighting their research on restorative justice in the school setting.

Restorative Justice is a non-punitive approach for dealing with conflict that is being implemented in a growing number of schools to reduce the harm of formal exclusionary punishments on students.

The Center’s research, funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, had the objective of describing current practice around restorative justice in U.S. schools. To complete this task, the project relied on the a number of tools, including an online survey, interviews, and a literature review.

The webinar was co-sponsored by the Region IX Equity Assistance Center at WestEd and the Region II Equity Assistance Center. See the archived webinar and related materials.
