On the first day this past Fall, when our returning 6th grade Hendy elementary students were
gathering in the library at one of the elementary schools, we asked them why they thought we
changed the name from Conflict Managers to Conflict Crew. One girl shot up her hand and said;
"My sister is a manager at her work and she’s the boss; she gets to tell people what to do. We
don’t do that; we are mediators and we let people figure it out for themselves.”
And that is almost
entirely verbatim. The adults in the room just looked at each other and smiled...we couldn’t have
explained it better if we tried!
Go Conflict Crew!
