The Government is looking to train approximately 3,000 school administrators islandwide in restorative justice practices.

Coordinator of the Restorative Justice Unit in the Ministry of Justice, Dr Kahilah Whyte, said the goal is to train at least three individuals at every institution, “[in] roughly 1,000 schools”.

She was speaking with JIS News following the ministry’s Restorative Justice Youth Town Hall Meeting at Sam Sharpe Teachers’ College in Granville, St James, on Wednesday, February 6.

Dr Whyte said the unit trained about 407 administrators from 198 schools across the island during 2018. This is in addition to other stakeholders, including justices of the peace and police officers.

She pointed out that the ministry remains committed to ensuring that stakeholders in schools islandwide are equipped with the requisite knowledge to be fully immersed in restorative justice practices.
