BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY
The role of discipline in relation to class room control and management in the
teaching learning process in secondary schools cannot be overemphasized. School
discipline is the most important key to effective and efficient classroom
control and management in the teaching and learning process. There is need for
an introduction to the concept of discipline as regard this research topic in
order to give the reader the background on which to base his/her own conclusion.
Though Turner (2004) sees discipline as one of the most controversial topic in
education. It is an area of interest that closely involves many parents and
teachers who feel the need to refine school value to take account of
changes in the social environment but have not always sure of the best way to
go about the job. In regard to teaching/learning process, Summer Hill (2002)
defined discipline as nearly total freedom to youngsters to find their own
philosophy of behaviour and relief or would it be wiser to seek to pressure
some or all of the traditional standards as an essential bulwark against the
risk of social disruption. Discipline according to Banjo (2000) is the law in a
good school for without it school life cannot fulfill its purpose.
Adeyemo (2005) defined discipline as the control of the children by the teacher
as applicable to a teacher of school life. Bicker State (2006) sees
discipline as the highest order to control and is self imposed by the
pupils rather than imposed from outside by the teacher. Feiret (2004) regards
discipline as measure by the extent to which children exercise self control and
wiling apply themselves to the tasks appointed by their teacher. In nut shell,
school discipline is the training which produces self control, orderliness,
obedience, and power of cooperation in the learning. Therefore, school
discipline involves self control and willingness to accept order, rules and
regulation governing the teaching/learning process.
STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
control and management which is the effective and efficient harmonization of
three variables such as the teacher, students and teaching resources so as to
enhance optimal teaching/learning process in secondary schools. Therefore,
classroom control and management is a matter of pertinent concern to the school
management, parents and the society at large. However, the major problems of
this research work are to investigate the factors affecting discipline which is
the chief factor affecting classroom control and management in the
teaching/learning process in secondary schools.
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY
study is set to examine the role of discipline in relation to classroom control
and management in the teaching/learning process in secondary schools. For the
purpose of the study, the following basic assumptions will be tested.
It is generally assumed that some teachers do not have in-depth knowledge of
classroom control and management in the teaching process in secondary school
rather than their counterpart in secondary school. Finally that some teachers
do not have the discipline on classroom control and management in the teaching
and learning process.
on the above assumption, the following researchable questions will be tested;
1. What are the roles of discipline
in relation to classroom control and management?
2. What are the management in the
teaching and learning process in secondary schools?
3. What are the effectiveness of a
good classroom control?
SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY
many authors defined discipline as self control and willingness to accept
order, one therefore agrees with them that if children or students are allowed
to do whatever they wanted to do, peace and order wo0uld completely be ruled
out for the school. e.g. in Economics, Geography, Mathematics, English
Language, History and Psychology, there should be discipline among the students
so that they can learn effectively. Discipline is important, for it involves all
the subjects in the school time table and also includes the students, teachers
and parents, communities, education officers, policy makers in one way or the
o0ther e.g. the following generalization can be made about the students
attending the school, they are well glad and well nourished, they are very
excited, they are easily distracted, have a limited attention span and turn off
at will. Then there are auxiliary staff of the school who are drawn from a wide
area, their aims are quite simple to learn and to live together in
understanding and tolerance and to give children a stale learning environment.
To achieve this, the life of school must be based on mutual respect for all its
members and understanding of the difficulties and problems they face. The
principal and teachers have responsibility for the whole area of working
relations with the school community, the principal or head of units doom must
never be closed to any students, parents, staff, members, education officer and
policy makers and he/she must also be prepared to listen at any time to
apparently trivial details which are of course of vital importance to the
