Can community-building begin in a classroom? The authors of this audiobook believe that by applying restorative justice at school, we can build a healthier and more just society.
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?
Two educators answer yes, yes, and yes in this new addition to The Little Books of Justice and Peacebuilding series. Amstutz and Mullet offer applications and models. "Discipline that restores is a process to make things as right as possible." This Little Book shows how to get there.
The Little Book of Restorative Discipline is skillfully read by Karen Chilton, narrator of the audio edition of Michelle Alexander's The New Jim Crow. This audiobook includes a bonus conversation with series editor Howard Zehr and Sheryl Wilson, President of the Board of Directors of the National Association of Community and Restorative Justice.
