A “guide” is precisely that, a template for you to play with, add to and remove elements. It provides you with the flexibility to produce optimum results customized to your particular school environment. I believe that educators have the ideal foundational skills and ability to take the concept of restorative justice and run with it, and I genuinely look forward to seeing how its usage in the school environment will evolve in the coming years through people who believe as I do that our youth deserve every second chance they can get. This guide is not an encyclopedia of restorative justice. It is for those action-spirited individuals who are ready to take effective action now. It is intended to demystify and simplify the restorative justice concept. (excerpt)
