Truly, Restorative Justices is working on making an impact in helping millions of teens in the school to prison pipeline. Restorative Justice has Provided support for teens that are at risk from ending up in prison since 1980. They have decreased the amount of suspensions and Increased graduation rates. Restorative Justice program is implemented through a 3 tier school wide model, strengths relationships between adults and students. Based on what I read on the oakland unified school district it says that, ” RJ not only strengths relationships between adults and students but acts like a preventative measure, as school communities are better equipped to resolve the conflicts as they appear, before they escalate into bigger issues. In other words, that means Restorative Justice makes sure the students and teachers are getting what’s best for them and working as a community to solve problems with students without having to take them get more bigger.  Restorative Justices Tier 1 is called community building and what happens in tier 1 is, it’s characterized and is used for social emotional skills.  According to the oakland school unified district it says that “RJ program is implemented through a 3 tier school wide model Tier 1 community building: characterized by the use of social emotional skills. Which means that tier 1 “process number 1″ Restorative Justice focuses on the emotions that the victim is feeling based on the conflict.  Tier 2 is called Restorative Process characterized by use of non-punitive response to the harm/conflict and they use the right concepts to the community.  In the oakland school unified school district website it states that Restorative Justice ,”Tier 2 is characterized by the use of non-punitive response to the harm such as mediation, family group conferencing to respond to disciplinary issues.” So in this case what Restorative Justice Tier 2 “process 2” makes sure the victim of the conflict is sure about how the victim is feeling and makes sure its not effecting the school, offender, or the victim in any type of way. Tier 3 called supported re-entry in this process they provide 1 on 1 support and solves the harm and makes sure the victim is able to be welcomed back in school and makes sure from there and on that the students are succeeding.  In the text that i read it states that,  “Tier 3 is characterized by 1:1 support and successful re-entry of youth following suspensions, truancy, expulsions, or incarcerations.  The goal is to welcome back to the community in a manner.” This means that in Tier 3 “process number 3”  Restorative Justice makes sure the victims are welcomed back and keep them motivated so that they achieve.  Without a doubt Restorative Justice is popular and it’s 3 tier school model is used on daily basis in many schools.Restorative Justice is known for helping teens who are at risk and it is important because it impacts teens ages 12-16 by mentoring them in many ways.  Since the 1980’s Restorative Justice has provided help fed or suspended?  Yes, Restorative Justice can solve this issue and decrease the number of teens in the prison system.
