The fundamental premise of restorative practices is that people are happier, more cooperative and productive, and more likely to make positive changes when those in positions of authority do things with them, rather than to them or for them.


Restorative Practices aim to reduce the suspension rate in middle and high schools by building a school culture that focuses on developing and maintaining relationships in which all voices are heard as problems are addressed and solved. Restorative Practices are effective in enhancing personal responsibility and empowering change and growth. Restorative Practices will decrease school suspensions among minority and other students for the three main infractions of disrespect, insubordination, and altercations.
