A SURVEY OF THE CAUSES OF INDISCIPLINE AMONG STUDENTS IN PUBLIC SECONDARY SCHOOLS

 

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1         BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

For obvious reasons, we might be tempted to undermine the theme of this paper. Reasons are not far fetched; the topic most academic will say is trite and is of commonplace discourse in the nook and cranes of the country and the world at large. However, we make bold to state here that these are mere assumptions. The topic demands our serious consideration and resolution because of its visible impediment to national growth and development. Beside, it is a topic of all times. That is its currencies are without doubt apparent.

This being so, a clear understanding of the topic begin with an espies on the meaning of the key term indiscipline. Indiscipline, a derivative of the world, discipline, according to the chambers Twentieth century dictionary is a mode of life in accordance with rules, subjection to control.

The oxford advanced learners dictionary defines it as lack of control in the behaviour of a group of people. Tuluhi and Bello (1980) assert that indiscipline is the breaking of rules and regulation of institutions. According to Uwagie-Ero et al (2002) indiscipline is a state of disorder used by lack of training and control. To this end, indiscipline can simply be seen as mode of life NOT in conformity with rules and regulations capable of obstructing the smooth and orderly, functioning of the school system.

Adeyemo (1985) school rules and regulations in most cases do affect students more than any other thing because are made by the school authorities. In order to guide and protect the students while in school. The problem of indiscipline is more apparent among secondary school students; indiscipline among them has attracted serious attention of scholars and administrators. These scholars and administrators attribute indiscipline among public secondary school students to their state of development. They opine that when students notice certain biological changes signaling maturity in the course of their growth and development, they tend to misbehave by faulting schools rules and regulations (Mukharjee, 1985).

The causes of indiscipline are based on the acts of indiscipline among students in public secondary school range from deviation from simple norms and instructions of heinous crimes infact, the list is inexhaustible. Ozula, (1986) listed some act of indiscipline which include disobedience, absenteeism, violence, dishonesty, arson, idleness disorderliness, laziness, vandalization, quarrelling, fighting, rioting, wickedness, smuggling, jealousy, gossip, drunkenness, greed, selfishness, discriminations, corruptions, bribery, drug abuse, sex abuse, and raping other are lawlessness, kidnapping, murder, oppression, misappropriation of fund and management. Disobedience is the mother of indiscipline. According to the Holy Bible, from the book Genesis 1:26,3:6, 22-23 says that God created the world and made man above everything therein still man sinned-disobeyed God by eating the forbidding fruit the consequence of this indiscipline was great, god cursed man and drove him out of the garden.
