"There is no evidence that punishment/reward systems do anything to teach student the behavioral and relationship skills they need to be successful (academically ad socially). In fact, our traditional punitive systems are deeply harmful to students, families, schools, and entire communities. Restorative practices shift away from punitive and retributive systems to affect change, improve outcomes, and make schools safer."
