Justice on Both Sides: Toward a Discourse of Restoration in Schools
February 25, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
February 25, 2016 – 4:00pm to 6:00pm
With disparities in school discipline falling sharply along racial divides, the practice of restorative justice has the potential to change the way we think about, plan and administer disciplinary measures in urban schools, using circle processes and case conferences to create boundary-crossing social networks for children and youth. Building on a program of research which examines the intersections of language, literacy and youth justice, Dr. Maisha Winn will explore restorative justice using case studies from across the country.
This event is free and open to the public. Registration is appreciated. A reception will follow the lecture.
