Background to the Study
Indiscipline is one of the major problems hindering the normal development of youths in the society especially students in post primary schools. Indiscipline as it concerns achievement of educational goals, has received a lot of attention.
Edem (2001)states that indiscipline is the violation of school rules and regulations which is capable of obstructing the smooth and orderly functioning of the school system should be consequently avoided through perfect orientation of students and imposition of positive sanction in case of obvious violation of the order.
Indiscipline is the inability of students and/or teachers to respect authority observe and obey school rules and regulations. It is also a social disorder which hampers a high standard of behaviour conducive to maintenance of teaching learning process.
Nwanna (2005) carried out a study of the major offences committed by students in some schools in the Western region and found that some of the most frequently committed offences include stealing, lying, bulling, lateness to school, rioting, cruelty, absence and truancy.
Soya (2006) in his study found that students these days
block the school entrance thereby preventing others, the principal and staff gaining entrance into the school premises. Such was another form of indiscipline behavior exhibited by youths these days. This act is termed socially as maladjusted. Some of the disciplinary measures adopted by the various school authorities are canning, suspension, manual labor, expulsion, deprivation of privileges etc.
Indiscipline is like a cankerworm that has eaten deep into the fabrics of the society. It breeds lawlessness and lawlessness brings crime, and consequently self-destruction. Indiscipline in schools contributes to lack of success in one’s life, if allowed to linger on for a long time. It is in this view of the above that the researcher was moved to carry out this study.
