Riestenberg presents the extension of restorative justice to schools in Minnesota. Most schools operate in ways divergent from or even opposed to restorative principles and practices. In the mid 1990s Minnesota education officials began studying and applying restorative ideas and processes in schools to resolve conflicts and reduce violence. Riestenberg surveys the history of this, as well as specific instances and programs in which restorative processes are being implemented in Minnesota schools.
