The influence being brought to bear on certain educational issues by different areas of society generates a degree of confusion and interpretations that are very different from those proposed originally as a result of research and reflection on education and teaching. Concepts such as “educational leadership” and “conflict” are a case in point. Achieving a certain conceptual unity is essential to preventing the indiscriminate use of those terms from distorting their meaning within an educational organization. Hence, the objective of this article, which is to conduct a conceptual review that shows what is now most relevant with respect to those terms.
