Ask Metta



I am in search of a K-8 non-violence/diversity education curriculum that can be incorporated into my school district.  Can you recommend anything, or do you know of any organizations that offer grants to schools that want to incorporate this kind of curriculum?  Any information you have would be appreciated.
thank you


Hi Christine,

You may be interested in the website Teaching Tolerance, which is run by the Southern Poverty Law Center, as well as the resources on the Educators for Nonviolence section of Metta’s site and our older EFNV site, which is no longer being updated but has a lot of information.


I would recommend “The Friendly Classroom for a Small Planet.” New Society Press, !998. The book is also handled by Children’s Creative Response to Conflict,

I believe a more modern edition has been prepared.
