DeVore and Gentilcore share their thoughts on the Balanced and Restorative Justice (BARJ) competency -based curriculum model and its impact on educational programming for students at risk. They conclude that the BARJ model provides a suitable framework for juvenile justice education. BARJ offers a restorative justice approach that holds offenders accountable for their behavior, enables them to make amends to their victims and the community, and provides them with competencies designed to make them better citizens and people.
