The importance of Peace Education

"Why are we violent but not illiterate? Because we are taught to read" -- David Allan

"Studying nonviolence is not for the faint or weak of heart, nor conformists or the close-minded; instead, it is for those who are intellectually brave, spiritually alive, socially engaged and lovers of long-shots."-- Colman McCarthy

Author, Washington Post journalist, professor and founder of the Center for Teaching Peace, Colman McCarthy speaks about the need to teach peace and the principles of nonviolence in schools.
