On a recent Thursday, Janae Carter, second from right, and Daryn Nieto, right, explain why they were listening to music on their phones in class. Every Thursday, a peer judicial panel of students at San Juan High School sit in judgment on fellow students who have broken campus rules. Justice is dispensed with an apology to the wronged party or an essay saying they won't repeat the offense. The practice is gaining strength around the nation and is popularly known as "restorative justice." Students on the panel are, from left, Quezisha Conner, Tristan Bare, Robert McCormick, Noelle Nixon and Ellina Hromava.
