Schools are communities created by staff, faculty, students, and families; these are the true experts.
Because each school creates its own unique culture, the implementation and practice of Restorative
Justice has to be tailored to the needs of each school and with the knowledge and support of each
school community. For this reason, there is no standard program or curriculum. Programs and curricula come and go; restorative practices go deeper. They result in a whole new way of thinking.
The purpose of this publication is to provide support and guidance for teachers, health workers,
community leaders, and school personnel who seek to implement Restorative Justice in their schools
and to shed light on its implementation. It is certain that the process will be new for each school
setting. Just like those who have informed this guide, new stories will continue to pave the way to
understanding. (excerpt)
