Gates Foundation Highlights OSI’s Karen Webber and Restorative Practices
VOICES FROM THE #PRINCIPALPROJECT COMMUNITY
by Baltimore City Public Schools
Over the past several years, Baltimore City Public Schools has been working to transform schools and communities by fully implementing restorative practices (RP).
As leader Karen Webber puts it, RP has been a primary tool in working to end the school-to-prison pipeline, advocating for students in crisis and reducing arrests and suspensions across the city – and RP has “become increasingly important as a tool for educators who are struggling to meet the educational and social-emotional needs of children surviving a pandemic.”
Principal Project partnered with five leaders and educators to shine a spotlight on the work happening in Baltimore and point the way toward resources that might support your own RP implementation.
