Schools are key locations where diverse young people could have guided opportunities to practice roles, skills, understandings and relationships for participation in democratic dialogue about social conflicts. Yet opportunities for constructive conflict learning (and agency) are often quite limited in schools, especially for marginalized students. Teachers seem to have little institutional support for addressing conflicts in an open, inclusive, equitable, participatory manner with diverse students, and few opportunities to develop skills and confidence as conflict dialogue facilitators. This paper examines how facilitated dialogue on difficult issues might be feasibly implemented in culturally diverse school settings, juxtaposing different types of school-based conflict dialogue that have emerged from different roots in research and practice.
