Can an overworked teacher possibly turn an unruly incident with students into an "opportunity for learning, growth, and community-building"? If restorative justice has been able to salvage lives within the world of criminal behavior, why shouldn't its principles be applied in school classrooms and cafeterias? And if our children learn restorative practices early and daily, won't we be building a healthier, more just society?

Two educators offer applications and models. Among them are class meetings for 5th graders; reintegration of 7th and 8th graders who were suspended; circle processes, which offer space for all voices to be heard, and also calm tensions that are building; and community conferencing when trouble shapes up between students and neighbors.

"Discipline that restores is a process to make things as right as possible." This Little Book shows how to get there.
