    I have weekly meetings with my classroom, usually on Fridays. The students put their names on the board and I preside over the meeting. I usually have a secretary taking minutes of the meeting, so we can see if the problem was solved at the next meeting. Students are allowed to use names and speak frankly about their problems, from bullying to recess problems to friend disagreements. If the other party is in the classroom, they are also allowed to speak a rebuttle. Witnesses can be called. It usually gets problems out in the open and once students can voice their problems, they usually go away.
