The research on restorative justice is solid.  Key variables:  Restorative programmes are characterized by four key values:

Encounter:  Create opportunities for victims, offenders and community members who want to do so to meet to discuss the crime and its aftermathAmends:  Expect offenders to take steps to repair the harm they have causedReintegration:  Seek to restore victims and offenders  to whole, contributing members of societyInclusion:  Provide opportunities for parties with a stake in a specific crime to participate in its resolution
J Cave's curator insight, November 18, 2013 11:57 AM

Restorative justice is something that I will be learning more about but on its face it seems like it is something that more schools should really look into.   Especially if it is effective and gives something for schools to use that may rely to heavy on suspensions and expulsions.

It should be obvious that building and reinforcing an organizational culture takes many people, and leaders at every level play a fundamental roll.  That said, I think this article hits the nail on the head by emphasizing that culture is "something that we do" ... and not something that can be proceduralized -- it's more art and less science -- it's more indirect influence and less direct supervision -- it matters a lot but there's no shortcut to quickly creating a good culture.

This is an ongoing discussion between my English Teacher friend and I.  I think the real question is why are we still teaching keyboarding??

Allan Shaw's curator insight, June 12, 10:21 PM

It is becoming clearer that it is important that we do not lose  handwriting as a skill! Strong positive neural development in a child is far more important than adeptness in using digital technologies. If research continues to support these initial studies many educators will need to reflect and possibly readjust.

Sharla Shults's curator insight, June 16, 11:57 AM

New evidence suggests that the links between handwriting and broader educational development run deep. Children not only learn to read more quickly when they first learn to write by hand, but they also remain better able to generate ideas and retain information. In other words, it’s not just what we write that matters — but how.

Davina De Laure's curator insight, January 26, 5:29 AM

this is my insight

i was shock to find out how poverty influences children's early brian development. This is because environmental factors that contribute to slower brain development often come with poverty, such as poor nutrition, a lack of sleep, an unsafe environment, and a lack of books and educational toys.i think that the goverment should do something about this issuse so that every child would have a equally head start in life. seeing child suffering due to lack of resorces makes me think that i should be lucky to have a place to study and have a family that is well to do and also have books to study and we can also make a differance for this children by donating books that we have used instead of throwing it donating money clothes etc

Ann Tan's comment, February 2, 9:18 PM
After reading this article, I think that the main factor which is hindering the children living in poverty is the environment they lived in.Children living in poverty lacked resources such as writing materials and books. Children do not have the basic materials a normal child needs. Children living in poverty have lack of nutrition, a shortage of sleep, an unsafe environment and a lack of books which results in a slower brain developmentParents could not afford to send their kids to school. Also, parents living in poverty are not highly educated too, hence, parents would be the greatest influence to children at the young age. I think that the government should set up free school for children living in poverty or poverty would be passed down from generations to generations with no education as it is very important. After reading this article, I think we should all be grateful and cherish what we have and how fortunate we are to have education.

The Lasting Impacts of Poverty on the Brain ~ The Atlantic

The Lasting Impacts of Poverty on the Brain ~ The Atlantic | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it

by Emily Badger

 

Poverty shapes people in some hard-wired ways that we're only now beginning to understand. Back in August, we wrote about some provocative new research that found that poverty imposes a kind of tax on the brain. It sucks up so much mental bandwidth – capacity spent wrestling with financial trade-offs, scarce resources, the gap between bills and income – that the poor have fewer cognitive resources left over to succeed at parenting, education, or work. Experiencing poverty is like knocking 13 points off your IQ as you try to navigate everything else. That's like living, perpetually, on a missed night of sleep....


"Some new research about the long-term arc of poverty, particularly on the brain, was recently published in theProceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, and these findings offer a useful complement to the earlier study....


"Poor children, in effect, had more problems regulating their emotions as adults (regardless of what their income status was at 24). These same patterns of "dysregulation" in the brain have been observed in people with depression, anxiety disorders, aggression and post-traumatic stress disorders.

 

"Over the course of the longitudinal study – which included 49 rural, white children of varying incomes – these same poor children were also exposed to chronic sources of stress like violence and family turmoil, or crowded and low-quality housing. Those kinds of stressors, the researchers theorize, may help explain the link between income status in childhood and how well the brain functions later on. That theory, they write, is consistent with the idea that "early experiences of poverty become embedded within the organism, setting individuals on lifelong trajectories."

This appears to be important, ground-breaking, scientific confirmation of what many have been asserting for quite some time.

Poverty and oppression (racism, sexism and other descrimination) create hurdles in motivation.    The research about bandwidth, that "the poor have fewer cognitive resources left over to succeed at parenting, education, or work,"  goes with the last two scoops about decision-making.  


It's also why programs and services that help interrupt this cycle and provide support, are not just individually helpful but also systemically important.  ~ Deb
