    Staff demographics don't yet match the student demographics despite efforts. Curriculum resources are there, but could use development.

Diversity and Inclusion
Changing The Course: Building An Antiracist Education Episode 4: In this episode, we talk with two leaders in the restorative justice field: Terrence Pruitt and Rev. Dr. Robert Spicer. Both Pruitt and Spicer have done extensive work with organizations and school systems across the U.S., including Noble Schools, to help them integrate restorative practices into their spaces. Pruitt and Spicer recently presented at a professional development session for our Culture teams in March. In this episode, they not only talk about what they presented to our teams but delve further into what it means to bring restorative justice into our schools.
