Roxanne Claassen, an eighth grade teacher at Raisin City Elementary School, introduces the “Principles of Discipline That Restores,” written by her husband Ron, who is co-director of the Center for Peacemaking and Conflict Studies at Fresno Pacific University. Claassen’s school has adopted their “Making Things Right” curriculum, and she explains how the restorative principles were applied successfully in a serious conflict between two girls over a boyfriend.
