Abstract

This is a criminologist's essay about how to make students in our schools safer, safer to be with each other and safer from one another, and safer from adult predation. Educating for peace is proposed as an alternative to making war on our schoolchildren. Educating for peace involves engaging students in peaceful relations, rather than simply teaching them techniques. It involves trust, responsibility, support, care, and love. It involves a mutual sharing of thoughts, ideas, and experiences, rather than a hierarchical power relationship between teacher and learner. Educating for peace is ultimately about doing peace, not learning about peace in mere abstraction.
