Understanding the Nature of Conflict: A Neglected Dimension in Educational Administration.
Barnes, Roland E.
Since conflict may concern goals, roles, or individuals, it is endemic to the decision making process and is particularly evident at the stage of formulating and weighing alternatives. The entire social system of the school may be drawn into or affected by the conflict. If these patterns are free to run their course, the school could quickly enter a state of complete disruption. Fortunately, there are interventions that can affect the course of the conflict and prevent its development into a totally disruptive event. A short annotated bibliography is provided. (Author/WM)
