The Center for Constructive Agreement
Information for Parents and Other Public School Constituents
The Center for Constructive Agreement was founded at the University of Northern Colorado in 1995 by Dr. Arnold Burron, its current director, and is now a private agency.
What Does the Center Do?
Conflicts in the public schools between parents and teachers, or between parents and administrators, are a common occurrence. Here's what the Center does:
1. We provide free copies of policies that will prevent problems from arising between parents and school personnel. Parents can ask school boards to adopt the policies.
2. We provide informational seminars on controversial issues to school boards, church groups, service clubs, and other organizations, at a reasonable price. For example, we've addressed the topics of "Parents' Rights in the Public Schools," and "Teachers' Rights in the Public Schools," in a variety of forums. We've addressed the topic of "People Problems" in both public and corporate settings.
3. We provide guests for radio and television interviews.
4. We provide mediation services when solutions to problems don't seem to be satisfying any of the constituents concerned with the problem.
Our goal is to provide solutions that protect the rights of all parties to a dispute, and to do so in a way that will be satisfactory--even if not perfect--for all sides.
The Center's director, Dr. Arnold Burron, has been featured in a variety of settings--state school boards associations, administrators associations, churches, service agencies, Christian school conferences, radio and television interviews (Point of View, D. James Kennedy, PTL, TBN, etc.), and at both public school and Christian school teachers conferences.
