Educating Beyond Hate. Peace Education Miniprints No. 23.
In recent years, it increasingly has been recognized that schools must change in basic ways if children are to be educated so that they are prepared to live in a peaceful world. This recognition has been expressed in a number of interrelated movements: "cooperative learning,""conflict resolution," and "education for peace." This paper discusses four key components in these overlapping movements: cooperative learning, conflict resolution training, the constructive use of controversy in teaching subject-matter, and the creation of dispute resolution centers in schools. The basic view is that students need to have continuing experiences of constructive conflict resolution as they learn different subjects as well as immersion in a school environment that provides daily experiences of cooperative relations. A list of 29 references is included. (Author)
