Student and staff responses to conflict resolution learning systems have been overwhelmingly positive. As schools open dialogue between students and provide processes for conflict resolution, teachers report fewer fights and more caring student behavior.
Another positive effect is improved attendance. Teachers are able to concentrate more on their class learning systems, and students experience a safer and less distracting learning environment. Administrators, noticing less absenteeism and decline in the number of student suspensions, also find they spend less time on disciplinary issues.
But the long-term benefit of conflict resolution learning systems is that students, teachers and parents can change their attitude toward conflict; it changes from a natural spark of confrontation, to a process to be worked through. Energies are redirected, and often the best student mediators are those who were previously considered troublemakers.
