TU's workshop is from 2-3:30 pm in Room 320:

Not Just a Suspension Alternative: The Roots of Restorative Justice in Schools
Teachers Unite members will share ideas and practices learned in our ITAG: Not Just a Suspension Alternative: Tracing the Cultural and Philosophical Roots of Restorative Justice. This winter, our ITAG examined a different text each week, tracing the history and philosophy of RJ in order to ground participants in the theory and particular contexts behind the often challenging practices schools are trying out. Through focusing on the political and cultural roots of restorative justice, we hope to deepen and ground our understanding of our own practice in schools as well as city-wide and national advocacy for RJ in schools.

See the whole schedule for the day here.

And come by the TU Table to say hello throughout the day & pick up resources!
