Mainstream press for restorative justice

A brief article appeared in this weekend’s Parade Magazine. Read at their website here.

Interesting to see how well a journalist can write an effective elevator statement for restorative justice–which is what this article amounts to (you’ll read it in under a minute). Also interesting to see, yet again, the same success data appear that we hear from so many evaluations of restorative justice programs.

This article even gives a dollars-saved argument for restorative justice. But let’s remember: we don’t do this just because it saves money. We don’t do it just because it’s more effective than other approaches. We do it because it’s the right thing to do.
