CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA) — Local educators were the ones learning Tuesday.
Kit Miller came all the way from the M. K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence, in New York.
The point of the conference was to teach educators about encouraging an environment of nonviolence and use restorative practices in the classroom.
She says the conference is a great way for teachers to take a step back and hit refresh before the school year starts.
Miller’s work focuses on promoting nonviolence with youth between the ages of 12 – 24. She even spoke in front of the United Nations last fall to share her findings.
