Mediation: A Transferable Process for the Prevention and Resolution of Racial Conflict in Public Secondary Schools. A Partial Case Study with Analysis.
Lincoln, William F.
The purposes of this paper are at least threefold: (1) to identify and explain mediation as a process constituting a deliberate set of sequential acts and nonacts as an appropriate means for peaceful, impartial crisis resoluation of inter racial violence between/among students in secondary public schools; (2) to present mediation as a viable option to direct police action often thought to be the sole immediate, intermediate, or sustained alternative; and (3) to discuss the transfer and applicability of mediation skills and procedures to similar situations in schools across the nation as an equitable, economical, and generally efficient approach. The incidents reported are facts which occurred in a single northeastern high school during the first year of court ordered desegregation. For obvious reasons, neither the school nor the parties, nor any of their personnel, will be identified. (Author)
