"Restorative practices in schools are based on restorative justice principles instead of punishment. Restorative circles/Morning Circles cultivate a culture in which everyone feels like they belong. They build a particular sense of community in which every member--students, teacher, parent volunteers, aides--feel that they are seen, heard, and respected. Lastly, in addition to serving the cause of fairness and justice, restorative approaches make safer schools and contribute to social and emotional learning." -Center for Restorative Process
