Metro CSS to Host 2018 Restorative Practices + Racial Justice Series August 22-24

On August 22-24, Metro Center's Center for Strategic Solutions (CSS) will conduct a training series on restorative practices and racial justice. This training series is designed to support school-based staff and community members in the process of implementing restorative practices to intentionally disrupt and dismantle institutional racism in schools. The series will explore the ways in which restorative justice practices can either uphold or dismantle racial gaps in academics and discipline in schools, as well as address how circles, as the central practice of a restorative model, can function as a culturally responsive teaching strategy and community management model that de-centers whiteness and values the culturally authentic narrative of every community stakeholder.
