Principal Matt Hornbeck gave this inspiring talk on “Restorative Practices in Schools” to the Juvenile Justice Team at MAJR (Maryland Alliance of Justice Reform https://ma4jr.org) and members of Education Huddle and the Criminal Justice Reform Huddle of WISE. Matt Hornbeck is introduced by his father, David Hornbeck, former Maryland State Superintendent of Schools, and founder of Strong Schools Maryland. Restorative practices have been shown to create strong positive community spirit in schools which increase retention. They reduce the number of juveniles who end up in the criminal justice system. We hope these practices will become widespread in Maryland schools.
