Full Circle: California schools work to transform discipline

In this special report, EdSource examines restorative justice in California schools as an alternative to traditional school discipline. Many see the practice, which prioritizes mediation and relationship building over punishment, as a way to improve school environments and reduce discipline disparities that adversely affect students of color. Others worry that some districts are implementing it without adequate resources, which could lead to more chaotic classrooms.
