My job was to create a paradigm shift within the school
context by introducing restorative justice as an alternative to
the traditional discipline system. After my training with Roca I returned renewed and ready to try this new way of working
with student violations. The principal, having had several
years of experience as an assistant principal, agreed that
suspensions and expulsions did not work to change student
behavior. Together, we began the restorative justice journey
at Cole. (excerpt)
