Key School’s Teaching Peace Initiative gaining national reach

TPIlogoWAn initiative begun by a handful of Key School students in Annapolis two years ago to combat the cultural norms of bullying, violence and intolerance has grown significantly.

Teaching Peace Initiative, a peer-led program that has developed curriculum to teach peace in schools, now has a presence in schools in 16 states, according to the group’s annual report.

“When we began in 2013, we were a small group of students meeting once a week in a math classroom,” Executive Director Fish Stark, now a student at Yale University, wrote in the annual report. “Since then our organization has made incredible progress. We’ve expanded our network of active schools from one to several dozen, we’ve brought on an incredible team … and we’ve brought TPI’s message of peace, tolerance and citizenship to hundreds of students.”
