Abstract

Scholars have presented sustainable conflict resolution approaches by referring to core elements like long-term effects, dialogues, social relationships, and learning opportunities. As educational leaders, teachers face conflicts every day and an earlier study revealed an extant language used by teachers to talk about them. The study presented in this paper aims at studying teachers’ conflict resolution strategies using grounded theory. Six focus group interviews were conducted taking its departure in the nine different ways of understanding emerging conflict expressed in the earlier study. Discussing their strategies for the various ways of understanding provided a richness that we had not expected. For example, teachers explained that they used pupils’ challenging of boundaries as a pedagogical strategy to learn to understand differences.
