Restorative practices seek to disrupt the so-called school-to-prison pipeline: a secondary consequence of zero tolerance policies and exclusionary discipline practices that disproportionately impact already disadvantaged students. Students removed from the classroom are less likely to experience academic success and more likely to enter the juvenile or adult justice systems. A panel of north Texas citizens formerly incarcerated will discuss the role of their school experience as it relates to their justice involvement.
