Transforming Education Through Restorative Justice
"Winn makes a compelling case for the use of restorative justice practices in schools as ... as a way to disrupt the school-to-prison pipeline that has destroyed the lives of too many young people of color." --Zahra Bokhari, Philanthropy News Digest "In a nation that is hyper-socialized to preserve the concepts of law, order, and punishment, especially with regard to Black and Brown bodies, shifting one's mindset is no simple undertaking. However, Justice on Both Sides is an accessible guide that serves as both a 'compass' and a 'map' for PreK-12 educators, administrators, policymakers, and all others whose work has implications for education." --Darius O. Johnson and Dorinda J. Carter Andrews, Teachers College Record "Winn shares the insights of teachers, students, administrators, support staff and parents who each look at restorative justice through their own lenses." --Bob Schultz, School Administrator "This book serves as a compass for educators committed to justice and transformation. It compels us to resolve the inequities in school while we seek to support all students." --Nadira Baksh, Professionally Speaking
