Abstract (Summary)

Many U.S. schools in poor communities are implementing restorative practices, which comes from the restorative justice model that has been implemented in many juvenile systems. Many schools are implementing restorative practice interventions to improve their drop out rates, graduation rates, and improve their relationships between students and staff. Often students who are suspended in high poverty schools are negatively affected for life by being unemployed, going to prison or even death. The purpose of this mixed method study was to find out teacher beliefs and attitudes towards restorative practices in two high poverty school districts. Also, the study aimed to gain an in depth understanding of the reasons non-supporters who do not believe in restorative practices.
