New York Friends Group, Inc., New York. Center for War/Peace Studies.
This article is reprinted from a monthly publication of fact and opinion on progress toward a world of peace with justice. The feature article presents a dialogue among educators who have been designing strategies for war/peace studies. Speaking on the topic in the title were: James Becker, director of Foreign Policy Association's School Service Program; Robert Freeman, director of Diablo Valley Education Project in California; William Nesbitt, director of Studies in International Conflict project; Betty Reardon, director of World Law Fund's School Program; and president of Bank Street College of Education, John Niemeyer, as moderator. Discussion gives some sharp insights into: 1) student attitudes on wars: inevitable and necessary; 2) problems in developing curriculum on war/peace; 3) world order and alternatives to the tradition of nation-state organization; 4) role of the school as an agent of change; 5) school community relationship; 6) values; 7) conflict resolution; 8) individual psychology; and 9) future history. The newsletter is available by subscription. (Author/JSB)
