There are numerous contexts in which negotiations occur inside of educational institutions and between educators and various stakeholders including students, parents, union leaders, elected officials, philanthropic organizations and advocates for educational reform. The Teaching Negotiation Resource Center (TNRC) offers teaching materials that explore all of these negotiating contexts as well as peer mediation – the training of students to mediate school disputes between other students.
