The author describes the application of Discipline That Restores (DTR) principles that his wife, Roxanne Claassen, has made in the classroom at Raisin City Elementary School. Originally met with scepticism, DTR training is now available to all teachers at the school, and detentions, suspensions, and fights have decreased dramatically while academic results are good. Also included are the 9 'Discipline That Restores' Principles, written by Ron Claassen, co-director of the Center of Peacemaking and Conflict Studies at Fresno Pacific University.
