    Book Review

Reviewed by Katelyn Hensel for Readers' Favorite

One of the most hotly debated subjects around the country, education in America's schools has been suffering in recent years. Unbroken Circles for Schools by Ken Johnson dives into one of the toughest issues facing public school systems today: Student conflict and behavioral issues. Conflict resolution can be taught to students in high school, but how can it be utilized while children are growing and learning at younger ages how to better handle themselves and situations that they may find themselves in.

Unbroken Circles for Schools is a great book if you either have an interest in Elementary and Secondary education or have children who will be going through such a school system. There are many examples and case studies which can be used to apply it to any particular need. One of the best things about this book is that Ken Johnson is realistic in his approach and discusses things like funding, training, and putting practices to good use in the administration of a school.

Ken Johnson is clearly very educated in this subject and goes into depth very intricately, providing tips, scenarios, and examples for most - if not all - of his points, allowing for easy understanding and implementation in the future. I also believe that this book could be used, not just in the form of educational instruction for institutions, but by parents, educators, and anyone else who is interested in smoothing out their conflict management skills. I could see this being applied to businesses as well,
