In this 90-minute webinar, researchers describe their study on restorative justice in U.S. schools. They conducted interviews with over 40 experts in the field, surveyed over 150 practitioners nationwide, and conducted a comprehensive literature review. Their research goals were to learn about current practices, essential elements of implementation, and provide recommendations for future research on restorative justice in K-12 settings.

In addition, the Principal of the Camden Street Renew School in Newark, New Jersey describes the work of administrators and teachers in using restorative justice at their elementary school site, and the impact on student outcomes.

The webinar includes recommended related resources for further exploration of the topic.
