In today’s schools a lot of time is spent on conflicts and social issues. There are studies showing that teachers only use 20% of their time in class for the actual subject and up to 80% of their time on conflicts and social issues of various kinds. However if the teachers undergo training in conflict resolution and learn another approach and use of language, the figures after two years can to be the opposite: 80% to the subject and only 20% to conflicts and social issues.
Education in conflict resolution is necessary for future teachers. Even practicing teachers could benefit greatly from learning more about this.
