Honored Guest George Pegelow
The No-Bully Solution & Youth Peer Courts in Marin County, CA.
George Pegelow has spear-headed the creation of Restorative Justice High School Youth Courts http://www.novatoblueribbon.org/Peer_Court.html and the "No Bully Solution" in Middle Schools http://www.novatoblueribbon.org/No_Bully__.html in Marin County, CA. These are highly successful programs that have resolved 80% of bullying incidents and reduced suspensions from 375 to 20 in one middle school. The teachers were so moved by the success of this work that they decided to use a circle format for their union negotiations. George used to teach at Stanford, including a course on "Sports, Consciousness and Social Change." He is a treasure of wisdom, experiences and resources.
