This timely book provides educators with examples of safe schools and many of the strategies safe schools use to create a culture of peace. The author proposes that lessons in peace―cooperation, respect, effective communication, celebrating diversity, expressing emotion, and conflict resolution―be incorporated into the school curriculum. The Peaceful School: Models That Work is for all educators with an interest in making schools and, ultimately, communities more peaceful.
