What do School-Wide Restorative Practices look like in the real world?

In our newest release, Creating Restorative Schools: Setting Schools Up to Succeed by Martha A. Brown, PhD, you will hear from educators, students, and administrators who are on the front lines of using restorative practices. Based on Martha's study of two middle schools in the Oakland Unified School District that are making the shift to a restorative model, the book maps the route from school cultures of zero tolerance to those cultivating healthy and vibrant relational ecologies at all levels. Addressing the potential pitfalls of implementing such a deep change in school culture, Martha shows us how nurturing relationships builds the capacity to make the shift and negotiate the challenges. Restorative schools emerge as places where people want to be—where teachers want to teach and students want to learn.

In Creating Restorative Schools, Martha Brown describes directly the challenges and benefits of moving the entire school staff towards a restorative culture. The process is not a straight line, and the side roads are many. The story of the two schools’ paths provides directions and cautions, essential insight for any educator working to implement Restorative Justice in Education principles and practices in their school.

— Nancy Riestenberg, Restorative Practices Specialist, Minnesota Department of Education

 We Shall Remain

"WE SHALL REMAIN is a music video that was created to address the effects of historical trauma in our tribal communities. Many times, these untended wounds are at the core of much of the self-inflicted pain experienced in Native America. Much like fire, this pain can either be devastatingly destructive or wisely harnessed to become fuel that helps us to rise up and move forward in life with joy, purpose and dignity." — Coeur d'Alene Tribal Youth 

This video was created by Coeur d'Alene Tribal Youth with funding support from Idaho Department of Juvenile Corrections and the Millennium Fund.
