Learn about Restorative Justice in Education – June 27-28

The Restorative Justice in Education (RJE) Academy is taking place June 27-28, 2016 at Eastern Mennonite University, Harrisonburg, Virginia, USA. Cost is $300 for the two days. Check out details and registration here.

You are invited to participate in the premiere Restorative Justice in Education (RJE) Academy sponsored through the Master of Arts in Education (MAED) program at Eastern Mennonite University (EMU). Long a pioneer in the field of restorative justice, Eastern Mennonite University was the first in the country to offer restorative justice programs housed within a graduate education program, as well as, the first to offer a Restorative Justice in Education certificate. This rich experience in restorative justice will be applied specifically to work in pre-K through 12 education. In addition to key RJE presenters, school teachers and administrators who are working with restorative practices in schools will share their insights on developing RJE cultures in school settings.

This upcoming RJE Academy will focus on key insights regarding restorative justice in education, addressing the following questions:

  • How will training and expertise in RJE benefit students, teachers, and the overall school culture?
  • Restorative “Justice” sounds like it applies to the judicial system. How does it transfer to schools?
  • How can RJE assist us in addressing needs of disenfranchised students, students on the fringe, poor attendance, graduation rates, low achievement, discipline concerns, and school/community issues?
  • Are there descriptors or indicators of an RJE school that can help guide our reflection?
  • How does RJE fit with existing behavior and/or anti-bullying programs?
  • How do we get started in implementing RJE in our school or school division?
