Restorative justice: an alternative to suspensions

California ended suspending most elementary students who defy teachers a couple years ago. Hoover Elementary in West Oakland sets a positive example as one man works to interrupt the school-to-prison pipeline.

Madyun says punitive methods are hurting students of color and his restorative model can help build them back up.
