009-esther-fine-2Raising Peacemakers, by Esther Sokolov Fine. 20% off on Amazon.

Purchase on Amazon | 20% off just $14.35

Raising Peacemakers shows that an authentic approach to managing child-to-child conflicts, learned in kindergarten, stayed with young children as they grew into adolescence and adulthood. It demonstrates by contrary example the profound error of standardized programs-in-a-box for “conflict resolution” and, by implication, much else in education.” –Carole Edelsky

“Esther Fine’s stories let readers learn how “doing peace” made and sustained lasting, positive changes in students’ lives.” – Patrick Willard Shannon

Raising Peacemakers is so much more than a well-designed blueprint for creating an alternative dispute resolution system in public schools. –Amazon
