Some of the recommendations made based on the findings include that; the head teachers should ensure that a good environment is created for good interpersonal relationship between them, their fellow teachers, parents and the students. This can be achieved by creating periods for PTA meetings, home visits by school heads and teachers, the head teachers should also ensure that students are taught their mother tongue as well as accommodate students’ mother tongue, as this would enable students to open up to learning and their environment.
