Peace in the Schools

When chemistry teacher Tiffany Childress implemented Kingian Nonviolence at North Lawndale College Prep (NLCP) on Chicago’s West Side, in the same community in which Dr. King lived in 1966, violence in the school fell by more than 70 percent and a culture of peace continues to develop.  Unique features of the program are peer training and the joining together of these students for trainings, to share ideas, to learn from each other and to create strategies to address social issues across traditional boundaries.
