Restoring Our Children's Future: Ending Disparate School Discipline Through Restorative Justice Practices, Kaeanna Wood

Journal of Dispute Resolution

In conclusion, this note argues that in implementing restorative justice practices as an alternative dispute resolution method, schools can end a pattern of disproportionately disciplining African American and Hispanic students and create an environment that fosters success for all children.
