It is not difficult to understand the relationship between peace and education. We can recover it from a more disciplined approach when we begin to seek the ultimate causation of the need for peace. As such peace will often remain a political hot potato; it is a factor, though neglected in the Kenyan education system, of major educational importance and often demands careful, sensitive and intelligent approach. We must perceive it as a lifelong process which starts in the family, continues at school and must be practiced thereafter in our professions and way of life. In this way all people should become ‘conflict literate,’ thus aware of what may cause conflict and its negative consequences that often times poses a formidable threat to the social fabric and sanctity of the society.
