Causes and impact of indiscipline among secondary school students




The purpose of this study is to investigate the causes and effects of indiscipline among secondary school students in Otuoke Community Secondary Local Government Area of Ogbia in Bayelsa State. The incessant occurrence of chaotic and sometimes criminal behavior not only by the audit population but also the students of this country in recent times has since begun to give cause for concern, particularly to parents, governments and school administrators. Questionnaires from a sample of a particular secondary school in Bayelsa State consisting of (200) respondents selected randomly from Otuoke community school using Simple Random Sampling Technique varying from students to teachers were analyzed. Among other things, it was found that peer groups to a large extent have an influence on their fellow students also the parents of the students are not left out as they too in one way or the other contribute positively and negatively to the behavior of a child. Drug abuse is also seen as a way of intimidating students or separating other students by the group they mingle with. In the findings, it was noted that parental influence and support in cheating practice can contribute to children engaging in acts of indiscipline.
