Restorative Justice in Education

In her blog post, Kathy Evans writes about caution needed in the trend towards restorative justice in educational settings in the United States. While recognising the significance of more schools implementing restorative approaches to discipline, she asks about the extent to which schools are nurturing restorative justice values. If “[r]estorative justice is as much an ethos as it is a set of tools in our tool belt,” then the kind of teacher training and methods of implementation must take into account transformation of people and systems. How can language learners and educators play a role in this transformation?
