Alex Caputo-Pearl talks about restorative justice in LAUSD on the KABC Doug McIntyre in the morning show on Tuesday November 10, 2015.
The challenges and benefits of restorative justice were discussed. John Deasy was chasing national headlines when he set up the framework of restorative justice, but he failed to follow through and establish the required supports for the new discipline system. Without adequate resources there have been difficulties and frustrations implementing restorative justice in LAUSD. The Broad-Walmart plan will pull ever more resources away from LAUSD schools, increasing the difficulties for successful utilization of restorative justice, and increasing the challenges of keeping our students learning in the classroom rather than suspended or expelled.
