Implications of using restorative justice practices in schools to restore broken relationships
Restorative justice practices aim to deal with negatively impacting behaviours in a context of respect and understanding. This results in the peaceful resolution of conflict, the restoration of respectful relationships and the development of emotional literacy and social awareness. Based on this literature review, schools that use restorative practices nurture cultures of safety, respect and inclusion. It is also culturally responsive towards Maori learners and aligns with aspects of the Treaty of Waitangi. Schools that employ these practices are fertile sites for fostering a community and society that replicates these values. Challenges still remain around the correct implementation and use of these practices in schools and also, if, or how, restorative principles could be part of students' formal education.
