In addition to the disparity in conflict resolution learning system resources between schools across America, the scope and purpose of each program also varies. Some districts offer only mediation programs, hoping to mitigate school violence. Others begin with mediation programs and create a more comprehensive learning system, adding a conflict resolution curriculum that calls for more active student participation.
Mediation programs often involve training student mediators and facilitating communication between disputants. Curriculum usually involves lessons on intergroup relations, cooperative learning, and dispute resolution techniques. While some districts have attempted to operate these learning systems on a very lean budget, others have received outside support, and have deeply integrated conflict resolution programs and curriculum.
