"towards understanding human behaviour"
"Stark examples as bring to fore the need for urgent conflict resolution... and imposition of subtle but drastic solutions"
Custodians of TNT have allowed this to escalate and the result spells soco-cultural disaster in the near future,
Should bullying be widely accepted as norm /a standard behaviour...by even those who should know better ???
This is a challenge to all concerned with true progress for TNT.
Education should provide an understanding of Negotiation, Mediation,and Consensus Decision-making.These will allow all concerned parties
an opportunity to explore peaceful solutions to any conflict. Such guidance will empower our young people to value harmony. It will also provide them with the strength to resist temptations of getting even and the need to rebel.
Whenever these problem-solving processes to conflict and strife become a way of life, our streets and our communities will be safer
places in which to live, exist, and to grow. Our schools,libraries and community centers will be havens of productivity and tolerance."
