Restorative discipline could work but you have to have some main components for it to do so. First, you need buy in. Second, you have to actually train your faculty and staff in RD. And a 40-60 minute presentation about it, is not training.

FWISD contract with Pacific Education Group (PEG) will lead to classroom disruption. The issue is not race but poverty. PEG tries to make great white administrators, principals and school boards feel guilty well...for being white... He feeds on the emotions and makes millions of dollars. What students of color (and poor) need more than anything is discipline. Life is not fair, it is competitive and tough. Students need to learn to survive in a capitalist society where its tough and unfair. And thru hard work they can survive.
