I refer to Creating Restorative Schools: Setting Schools Up to Succeed by Martha Brown as the Bible of Restorative Justice in Education. It goes in-depth in every way necessary to implement Restorative Justice in Schools. I have used this book as the basis for many of the trainings I have given in schools and other community organizations, and it has truly made a difference in programs that have made a true philosophical shift to Restorative Justice within their community.
