TEACHERS’ VIEWS ON THE CAUSES OF INDISCIPLINE IN SECONDARY SCHOOLS

TEACHERS’ VIEWS ON THE CAUSES OF INDISCIPLINE IN SCHOOLS

 

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

THE ’S BACKGROUND

We may be tempted to undermine the theme of this paper for obvious reasons. The reasons are not far-fetched; most academics will say that the topic is the commonplace discourse in the country’s and the world’s nooks and crannies. However, we take the risk of stating that these are only assumptions. Because of the obvious impediment to national growth and development, this issue requires careful consideration and resolution. Without a doubt, currencies are visible.

As a result, a clear understanding of a topic begins with an examination of the definition of the term indiscipline. According to the Chambers twentieth century dictionary, indiscipline is a way of life in accordance with rules that is subject to control.

The Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary defines it as a lack of control over a group of people’s behavior. According to Tulihi and Bello (1980), indiscipline is the violation of institutional rules and regulations. Indiscipline, according to Uwagie Ero et al. (2002), is a state of disorder caused by a lack of training and control. Indiscipline can simply be defined as a way of life that is not in accordance with rules and regulations and is capable of impeding the smooth and orderly operation of the school system.

School rules and regulations, according to Adeyemo (1985), affect students more than anything else because they are created by school authorities to guide and protect students while they are in school. The issue of indiscipline is more visible among school students.

Scholars and administrators have taken note of their lack of discipline. In their current state of development, these scholars and administrators attribute indiscipline among public secondary school students. They believe that when students notice certain biological changes that indicate maturity during their growth and development, they misbehave by violating school rules and regulations (Mukharjee 1985).

The causes of indiscipline are based on acts of indiscipline among students in public secondary schools, which range from deviation from simple norms to instruction of heinous crime; the list is endless. Disobedience, vandalism, quarreling, fighting, rioting, wickedness, absenteeism, violence, dishonesty, arson, idleness, disorderliness, laziness, smuggling, jealousy, gossip, drunkenness, greed, selfishness, discrimination, corruption, bribery, drug abuse, sex, and raping are among the acts of indiscipline listed by Ozula (1986).

Other examples include lawlessness, kidnapping, murder, oppression, fund misappropriation, and mismanagement. Indiscipline is the result of disobedience. According to the Holy Bible, Genesis 1:26, 3:6 says that God created the world and made man above everything in it, but man sinned-disobeyed God by eating the forbidden fruit. The result of this indiscipline was severe, and God cursed man and drove him out of the Garden of Eden.

PROBLEM MENT

This study aims to investigate the results of a survey of teachers’ perceptions of the causes of indiscipline among students in public secondary schools and how to prevent it. The following are the fundamental .

THE ’S OBJECTIVE

The investigation’s goal is to

1) Determine the societal influence on indiscipline.

2) Determine whether students’ indiscipline is caused by their home environment.

3) Look into how poor school administration contributes to indiscipline.

4) Determine whether the influence of peer group has contributed to the level of student indiscipline in school.

QUESTIONS FOR RESEARCH

The following will serve as the foundation for the /hypo:

1) What are the causes, problems, and solutions to indiscipline among students in public secondary schools?

2) How do societal morals influence indiscipline?

3) Does one’s upbringing influence indiscipline?

4) How does ineffective school administration affect students’ disciplinary behavior?

5) Does peer group influence contribute to indiscipline?

THE ’S IMA

The importance of this study is to identify the causes and solutions to school indiscipline. These findings will go a long way toward exposing teachers and other school personnel to the root cause of school indiscipline. And, as a result of this research, principals see their flaws and develop a more effective approach to teaching and school management, which will aid teachers in reducing disruptive behavior in schools.

Finally, the study’s findings will assist parents, teachers, school administrators, the , and society in general in understanding the various roles they should play that may lead to indiscipline.

This study was restricted to these four public secondary schools.

1) Okada ary School, Okada

2) Ugbogiobo’s Ebomise Secondary School

3) Elawure Primary School, Usen

4) Ezomo in Ora

However, the factors discussed below played an important role in the study’s limitation.

Finance: the lack of funds to carry out the research work, both in terms of visiting schools to collect data and purchasing adequate vital roles for the research, such as foolscap sheets and other that the researcher processes effectively due to time constraints.

Time: Because there is enough time, the researcher believes it is necessary to limit the study to certain schools. In addition to the facts mentioned above, the lack of sufficient literature makes it prudent to limit the study to a specific area.
