This paper outlines a framework for developing peace education agenda in high schools and college and university level. Historical peace education programs are reviewed and included into a comprehensive program of substantive, peace education content and pedagogy. The historical programs reviewed include the Integral Model of Peace Education, Learning to stop War, and Master of Arts Program in Peace Education at our school, college & University level for Peace education. Peace is simply having a feeling of security, calm and restfulness. We often tend to think of peace as being an international issue, far from our daily life, but we do not realize that global peace can only be achieved if each country is established at peace. The peace and happiness of each country can only be achieved if every citizen is at peace. This follows therefore that a country can be peaceful and progress if people live tolerantly. We all want peace of mind. The need of the hour is to develop the young generation with peace consciousness and the importance of conflict resolution. Neither our society nor our educational system has any scope for highlighting the importance of peace and conflict resolution. In every walk of life our attention is focused on violence, confrontation, competition, self-interest and the need to win. The history of wars is no longer than peace. It took the impact of two world wars and the Hiroshima bomb disaster for human kind to begin to perceive the concept of peace as the primary goal. Our School, college and university teacher can spread massage about the peace in the society through our studying generation. The whole reliant of peace of our nation on the student, simply they can learn and establish in society peace. Here teacher?s role is very important to teach student what peace education is and how to maintain in society peace so that, every citizen can be avoid any kind of conflict from neighbor to neighbor country.
