Abstract: This study focused on the impacts of strikes on academic performance of students in some selected secondary schools in Bukwo District. The objectives of the study focused on the causes of strikes, relationship between strikes and academic performance of students and ways to curb strikes and improve academic performance of students in the selected secondary schools. A case study design was used and 70 respondents were sampled through simple random sampling and purposive sampling methods. Interview, and questionnaire were the instruments used and both primary and secondary sources of literature review formed part of this research. This study focused on how strikes were caused by different factors right from family background, school, ‘and external’ influences. Direct relationship between strikes and academic performance of students was observed in that if there were strikes in school students’ performance were likely to be low and the reverse is true. Appropriate strategies were suggested to curb the phenomenon of strikes and improve academic performance in the selected secondary schools. Some of these included building disciplinary committees, listening and addressing student’s problems, coordinating with parents, teachers and forming student’s forum among others. The researcher recommended on the student’s deviant behaviors that tend to lead to strikes and was to be controlled at all costs if better academic performance is to be achieved.
