Restorative Justice Practices – RJP
Restorative justice practices empower students to resolve conflicts on their own and in small groups, and it’s a growing practice at schools around the country. Essentially, the idea is to bring students together in peer-mediated small groups to talk, ask questions, and air their grievances. Restorative justice practices have helped strengthen campus communities, prevent bullying, and reduce student conflicts.

Whether you’re new to restorative justice or well-versed in the subject, looking at the evidence and examples of successful programs can be fascinating.
