Educating for Peacebuilding

Implementing restorative justice principles and practices in a school system

Author: Catherine Bargen
Now Available

"As we proceeded cautiously, endeavouring to stay true to the philosophy of restorative justice... we saw individuals embracing the values of restorative justice in their lives — the seeds of culture change that would eventually create more humane school communities."
(from the Preface)

In 2000, the Langley School District in British Columbia, Canada, joined with Fraser Region Community Justice Initiatives in a venture to introduce restorative justice principles and practices into their schools. Six years later the Langley School Board mandated that the schools in its district offer a restorative approach when dealing with conflict and harm.

Educating for Peacebuilding is a lively account of how this happened — the successes, failures, challenges, and lessons learned — and the ongoing efforts to bring about positive culture change in school communities.
