Conflict is an integral part of school life where a number of people come together for common goals but with different personal beliefs, values, needs, capabilities, emotional intelligence and interests. When these difference are expressed or intervened by individuals, conflict arise. Being an interesting area of investigation and my own personal engagement as a community leader with conflicts, I ventured to study conflicts in schools and how they are viewed by the immediate stakeholders i.e. headteachers and teachers. The purpose of the study was to explore the headteachers? perceptions and strategies dealing with staff conflicts at secondary schools in a rural context. This book is a overview of conflicts including its nature and impact. It also explores headteachers? perceptions and strategies of dealing with conflicts in different situations in schools.
