Good piece of information. I am a school administrator who wishes to have more details on these strategies used to resolve conflicts in schools. Your quick response will be appreciated.

Our district has started reading and implementing strategies from the book "Better Than Carrots or Sticks: Restorative Practices for Positive Classroom Management" by Dominique Smith, Douglas Fisher, and Nancy Frey. It is a quick read with practical strategies that you can begin implementing immediately.

I am a Restorative Discipline Facilitator here in Waco, Texas and I love Restorative Justice. It definitely helps resolve conflicts and addresses so much more for at risk students and their families.
