     Teach   Your   Children Well: Promising Progress in
  Conflict   Resolution Education and Peace Education



D uring my six years   as editor-in-chief of Conflict Resolution Quarterly,
     I have tried to support the publication of scholarship in all areas of
the field. But I have made a special effort to publish research and theory
pieces that address conflict resolution education (CRE). As I stated in an
earlier volume focusing on  CRE  and  in my  article summarizing field
research in CRE (Jones, 2004), I believe the future of the conflict manage-
ment  field will depend significantly on our ability to encourage conflict
resolution education among our youth. We have a rare opportunity to help
educate entire generations about the benefits of constructive conflict man-
agement  and alternative dispute resolution. Thus, it is fitting for me to
devote the last issue of my editorship to this topic and to help our field
understand the variety of ways that CRE and  peace education are being
implemented  around the globe.
   This  issue contains research articles and short descriptions of CRE
programs  outside the United States. The issue begins with an excellent
meta-analysis by Wendy  Garrard  and Mark  Lipsey that investigates the
impact of CRE  on antisocial behaviors among elementary- and secondary-
school children. The meta-analysis supports previous, traditional reviews
of CRE   research that confirm the positive impacts of these efforts for
students and  schools. Carolyne  Ashton's article on peace  education
research reminds us that there is still far too little research examining the
efficacy of peace education  programs  outside the United  States and
provides a powerful approach  using a theory  of change as a basis for
conducting peace education evaluation.
   The  majority of this issue is devoted to short articles about innovations
in CRE   and peace education around  the world. The  authors represent
countries from Western and Eastern Europe, Asia, Oceania, Latin America,
