Sue-Ann Rosch founded the Community School for Social Justice in the South Bronx, where administrators used advisory groups to craft a Restorative Justice Model for student discipline and address rising student suspensions and chronic absences in a violent inner-city neighborhood.

Rosch discussed how the advisory groups helped to shape the core values that drive the school's restorative justice work during an Education Leaders Roundtable at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture in March.

"We ended up with four community values that we live by . . . one—respect, two—supportive community, three—everyone has a voice, and four—social justice."

The Community School for Social Justice includes information on its approach to restorative justice on its website.
