Zero tolerance policies and exclusionary practices such as time-outs, suspensions and expulsions are often not having the desired effect of reducing harmful behaviour in our schools. In this session, participants will receive an overview of what Restorative Justice entails, and will explore how the principles and practices can be applied in the educational setting. Information will be relevant for teachers and administrators working in K-12 schools. This session will provide an introduction to Restorative Justice in Education - participants will leave with some practical ideas to try right away in classrooms and schools, and will be encouraged to undertake further study and training if they wish to adopt the RJE philosophy and practices on a more significant scale.
