Abstract

Act of indiscipline among secondary school students in Nigeria has become unbearable and this ranges from lateness to school, bullying, drug abuse, cultism to mention but a few. This menace no doubt, has been affecting the realization of school goals. This paper x-rayed the curbing of the act of indiscipline among secondary school students. The current measures being taken to curb the menace, the loopholes in the current measures, the productive measures to be taken and the most productive of those measured were all looked into. Four research questions raised and interview was employed as the instrument to collect data. Purpose sampling technique was used to select all the 334 secondary school principals who served as respondents. The findings revealed that counseling and parental involvement were the current measures of curbing indiscipline in secondary school. It also revealed that parent negative reaction to students’ discipline was the major loophole in the current measures of curbing indiscipline, while counseling was discovered to be the most productive measures of curbing indiscipline. It was therefore concluded that counseling and parental involvement were the productive measures of curbing indiscipline in Nigerian secondary schools. Recommendations were made among others that the current measure of curbing indiscipline be sustained while parent should change their negative attitude toward curbing indiscipline
