From Living Justice Press:
In this, her first book, Nancy Riestenberg writes warmly and with long experience about the challenges facing school communities and how restorative measures—specifically Circles—create a safer space for learning and development for all. Using stories direct “from the hallways,” she brings heart to subjects that are often divisive and controversial: bullying and other violence, suspension, drug use, staff conflicts, and more. Throughout the book, Nancy’s focus is on strategies that actually work for the whole school community: students, parents, administrators, teachers, and the community in which they live.
