Endorsement of work by Howard Zehr

I received a message this morning from colleague Dr Amanda Smith Byron of Portland State:

I just wanted to let you know that Howard Zehr spoke tonight as the keynote for the Northwest Justice Forum, and as he shared his vision for the future of RJ, he said that he imagined it being integrated deeply into the way we teach our children. He then quoted you as the expert in thinking this through, and as saying (something to the effect that) schooling should be half academics and half problem solving/relationship building.

My thanks to Amanda for sending along this message, and to Howard for the endorsement of this important work.
