On April 4, OSI-Baltimore and the University of Baltimore Law School’s Sayra and Neil Meyerhoff Center for Families, Children and the Courts (CFCC) present the 10th annual Urban Child Symposium, “Restorative Practices and the Urban Child: Rethinking School Discipline.” The free (registration required) one-day symposium will examine alternatives to the punitive and adversarial practices that are regularly used to combat negative behavior in students—in Baltimore and around the country. Panels of education, justice, and policy experts will focus on how restorative practices can address both negative school behaviors, improve school climate, and keep children in school and avoid the school-to-prison pipeline, among other things.
