Abstract:

"In 1982 Washington Post columnist Colman McCarthy was invited to teach a course on writing at an impoverished public school in Washington D.C. He responded, "I'd rather teach peace." Since then, he has had more than 5,000 students in his classes on nonviolence, pacifism, and conflict management." "I'd Rather Teach Peace is the story of one man's passion for peace education, as seen during one semester in six schools where risk-taking students found themselves challenged and inspired by an unconventional course and by a man who believes that if we don't teach our children peace someone else will teach them violence."--Jacket.
