Conflict Resolution Courses Could Save Lives, Greenwood (SC) Index-Journal, 12/7/17

This opinion piece published by the editorial board of the Greenwood (SC) Index-Journal titled “Our View: Conflict resolution courses could save lives” is powerful.  In particular, I appreciated this paragraph:

“Still, if teaching high school kids how to perform CPR is deemed a worthwhile element in their education as a means of saving lives, why not pour some time and effort into conflict resolution and also potentially save lives?”
