REVIEWER’S COMMENTS ON THE DOCUMENT:

Many young people in school commit offences or are victims of an offence or other antisocial act. Punishment is usually seen as the most appropriate response to wrongdoing in schools. The document explores alternatives to
punishment as it could be counter-productive. Lately, restorative approaches have been considered as a relevant way of addressing school violence.
