Restorative Justice In Schools
Montbello High School reduces suspension and expulsion rates by 30% using Restorative Justice.

Most  discipline problems in schools  happen because of inter-personal conflict, leaving students or staff with negative feelings of  anger, hurt, resentment, anxiousness,  or fear.  When these conflicts happen  those involved need:
  • · an attentive ear
  •   a chance to tell their side of the story                                                     
  •   a chance to express  their thoughts and feelings,
  • · a vehicle for which to help understand better how the situation happened
  • · to understand how it can be avoided next time,
  • · to feel understood by the others involved
  • · an acknowledgement of the harm caused, even an apology
  • · to find a way to move on and feel better about themselves and others.

Restorative practices provides these needs and more.
