An alternative to suspension and expulsion: 'Circle up!'
from the story by Eric Westervelt on NPR: Oakland Unified, one of California's largest districts, has been a national leader in expanding restorative justice. The district is one-third African-American and more than 70 percent low-income. The program was expanded after a federal civil rights agreement in 2012 to reduce school discipline inequity for African-American students. At Edna Brewer Middle School, the fact that students are taking the lead — that so many want to be part of this effort — shows that it's starting to take root. "Instead of throwing a punch, they're asking for a circle, they're backing off and asking to mediate it peacefully with words," says Ta-Biti Gibson, the school's restorative justice co-director. "And that's a great thing."

RJ Article Chankova, Dobrinka. Teaching Restorative Justice in Universities and Beyond
Teaching of RJ in the European universities should be further promoted. But teaching of restorative values should start in the middle and secondary schools. And not only in a selected number of schools with open minded directors, ready to experiment; the whole school restorative approach should be the general policy. This is the only way to create a restorative culture, which we desperately need. (excerpt)

File Restorative Justice - Seminary Course
Instructors: Harold Dean Trulear and Sylvia Moseley (TA). School: United Theological Seminary/Payne Theological Seminary. Date: January Term 2008. Description: Restorative Justice refers to a branch of ethics concerned with setting right relationships in response to offense. In the criminal justice system, offense is treated through some form of consequence, usually punitive. But the Christian needs to look beyond punishment to the concept of order and right relationship prescribed by God in His will for His people. So while the criminal justice system tends to punish and segregate offenders, the church strives for more- for restoration of relationships and all this entails. If participants take this course seriously, they will never be able to rid themselves of the image of a new way to address crime and justice in America- and especially in the African American community.
