From Defunding the Police to Alternatives to Policing with Community-based Approaches

Guests also discuss the school to prison pipeline and explain the theory, practice, and benefits of using ‘restorative justice’ in the context of public schools.

Project Censored researcher and author Amber Yang, a Restorative Justice and Wellness Coordinator in Northern California rejoins the show along with Phoebe Smith, a long-time public-school teacher, teacher trainer, and consultant to school districts on restorative-justice practices in the greater San Francisco Bay Area. As the concept of “defunding the police” is discussed nationwide, this week’s program offers alternatives to policing with community-based approaches. Mickey’s guests also discuss the school to prison pipeline and explain the theory, practice, and benefits of using ‘restorative justice’ in the context of public schools.

[Editor’s note: This program was edited to excise 6 minutes of the broadcast to potentially protect the identity of a minor student, who while not named, was still edited out in keeping with the spirit of FERPA.]
