    Restorative Justice Practice/Training in Schools and Universities

    Schools and Universities are seeking ways to create a safe environment for their students, but incidences of bullying and violence still pervade. Student suspension rates are on the rise and many argue that forbidding students from attending to school exacerbates, rather than remediates, the problem. Suspension may also lack effectiveness since it denies conversation about underlying issues and unmet needs. Nor does suspension offer alternative strategies for handling anger effectively or navigating conflict tactfully; non-violently. Basically, it skips over the teaching point.

    African Forum for Restorative Justice is committed to helping to educate the next generation of decision-makers on the need and benefits of Restorative Justice in schools and other educational bodies to improve the awareness, aspirations and attainment of students and officials.

    Our approach is to provide practical support to teaching and support staff by bringing Restorative Justice Interest and expertise into the classroom while providing a range of opportunities for students to engage in Restorative projects and activities outside the school gates, embedding Restorative Learning in Community settings and harnessing the educational benefits of the natural world.
