Restorative Justice for All

January 27, 2014 | by Barbara Sugarman Grochal | The Baltimore Sun

In this Baltimore Sun article, Barbara Sugarman Grochal discusses how restorative justice takes the community and the victims’ voices into account to collaboratively develop consequences that hold the offender responsible and encourage him or her to work toward repairing the harm. The article also discusses the use of restorative justice in schools as a drastically different discipline policy than zero-tolerance.
