As scholars and practitioners, Tricia Jones and Randy Compton have been dedicated to promoting conflict resolution education (CRE) for years. In introducing their book, they claim that, despite the ‘bad news’ about problems in schools, there is much ‘good news’ in terms of dealing with the problems. Hence, they have edited and designed this volume with two goals primarily in mind. The first goal is to let expert practitioners in CRE tell educators about the best practices and practical advice with respect to the use of CRE programs. The second goal is to let students and teachers convey the impact of CRE programs based on their personal experiences.
