Breaking a vicious cycle [Editorial]

Breaking a vicious cycle [Editorial] | Restorative Justice Outside Illinois | Scoop.it
For far too many young people who get caught up in the criminal justice system, an arrest or conviction for even a minor, non-violent offense can become a one-way ticket to a shrunken future that slams the door on opportunities for the rest of their lives. Being arrested as a teen increases a person's chances of being arrested again as an adult, and teenagers sentenced to jail are more likely to be incarcerated later in life as well. Add to that the nation's harsh drug laws and stiff mandatory minimum sentencing policies and it's no wonder America locks up more of its citizens than any other country in the world.

Victims and Offenders Come Together to Make Their Own Justice

Victims and Offenders Come Together to Make Their Own Justice | Restorative Justice Outside Illinois | Scoop.it
hirty-five states have adopted legislation encouraging the use of restorative justice for children and adults both before and after prison, though many local law enforcement departments have for years relied on local nonprofits to perform the sessions without an official blessing from the state.

As states step back from mass incarceration, restorative justice is becoming more widespread and formalized. Last year West Virginia set aside funding for restorative justice and other alternatives to incarceration in the juvenile justice system. Some states, such as Vermont and Colorado, have passed laws that encourage the use of the strategy statewide by creating agencies that oversee or even provide the service.

How to make Chicago schools safe - Chicago Sun-Times

How to make Chicago schools safe - Chicago Sun-Times | Restorative Justice Outside Illinois | Scoop.it
BY JEAN KLASOVSKY: When I started teaching in CPS, I attempted to manage my classroom with reason and civility. It didn’t work. I asked my classes, “What must I do to get you to change your behavior?” They answered, “Send us to the discipline office.” That’s when I got it. The “zero tolerance” policies my students had grown up with taught them their behavior didn’t need to change unless they were punished.
