Irene R. Pedrano



This study aimed to determine the relationship between conflict management skills of teachers and misbehavior of students as basis for an intervention program among senior high school students of secondary schools in Alamada, Cotabato. The study made use of descriptive-correlational design. It included 194 respondents composed of Grade 12 senior high school students who were chosen through stratified random sampling. The survey tool used for the data gathering was adapted. Mean, standard deviation and Pearson r coefficient were the statistical tools used. Results showed that the conflict management skills of senior high school teachers were often observed which means that they frequently observed classroom management, managing inappropriate behavior, managing student academic work, promoting appropriate use of consequences and setting expectations for behavior. The level of misbehavior among senior high school students was low. However, it was noteworthy that the indicator which pertained to the chronic misbehavior yielded a moderate level. Finally, there was not enough statistical data that warranted the significant relationship between conflict management of teachers and misbehavior of students among secondary senior high schools.
