Limited Capacity filling up

Schools across the country are reforming their disciplinary policies and processes to be more humane in how they address student behaviors and incidents. Many are incorporating Restorative Practices as a means to help students not only process disciplinary situations but also explore life situations through this social justice method. TKF is a San Diego nonprofit that successfully utilizes its tragic founding story to conduct restorative educational programming that teaches middle and high school students deeper lessons on accountability, compassion, forgiveness, and peace.

Since the 1970’s, our country has embraced the notion of punishment and exclusion within education systems to deal with student discipline often putting young lives on a damaging punitive cycle. From 1972 to 2012 out-of-school suspension rates increased 300% and youth incarceration rates rose by 400% creating a school to prison pipeline. You will participate in session activities to learn about TKF’s programs and the impacts of teaching deeper social-emotional life skills and restorative strategies. As mindsets shift and schools develop supportive and healing climates, they want more. Participants will do project work to identify and detail how to further support students and schools in practicing restorative strategies.
