Teaching Today through Children's Rights and Korczak's Inspiration

Ira Patacki, a former lawyer who has shifted to a career in education, will examine the children's republic in the classroom today. The Youth Court and its emphasis on the concept of restorative justice offers an ideal way to promote individual responsibility and constructive group interaction to promote change and empower our students as stakeholders in the school community. The SKY (Sharpsville Korczak Youth) Court arose as an organic hybrid of Korczak's progressive vision and the concept of restorative justice. This program is part three of the three-part study seminar entitled "Children's Rights in Our Time: The Legacy of Janusz Korczak." Registration is required.
