Mediation in Schools

mediation in schools

Mediation in the school systems is a trend that is catching on fast! The potential for conflict can be extremely high in schools because parents and teachers have different opinions, bullying between students, or maybe there is conflict between teachers and their approach to education. Mediation is a way to manage conflict so that the parties involved can learn and grow from the experience. Examples of disputes in the school system:

Student/Student

  • Name Calling
  • Teasing
  • Exclusion
  • Friendship Problems
  • Rumors
  • Fighting

Parent/Teacher

  • Personality clashes
  • Homework demands
  • Extracurricular activities
  • Individual learning needs

Parent/Parent

  • Discipline
  • Bullying
  • Sports Events

Teacher/Teacher

  • Curriculum
  • Personal styles
  • Teaching Strategies
