Examined the effectiveness of a conflict-resolution skills training program offered as an alternative to out-of-school suspension in reducing violence among high school students. Pre- and post-intervention disciplinary data highlighted a statistically significant differences between groups regarding expulsion. Program completers received no expulsions, were much less likely to receive another suspension for fighting, and received fewer post-intervention school disciplinary acts than did those who did not complete the program.
