Nature of Conflict between School Administrators and Parents over Early Marriages
AbstractUsing a qualitative case study design, the study sought to establish the nature of conflict between school administrators and parents arising from early marriages and to establish the conflict management strategies used by school administrators to resolve those conflicts. The findings of this study suggest that the nature of conflict related mainly to contradictory interests and biological ownership of the girl children. Among the conflict management strategies used to address such conflicts was dialogue between the school administrators and parents. The study recommends, among other things, that it is prudent for government and other stakeholders interested in education to find innovative ways of fighting early marriages in order to safeguard the future of the girl child.
