CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

Background to the Study

Bandura and Allinstimita (1969) discipline is a state of order maintained by training and control a particular system of regulation for conduct, instruction and exercise Designed to train, to proper conduct or action, systematic training inflicted by way of correction and training.

Akinboye (1980) Discipline is also the training of moral character to produce self control and habit of obedience. It is essential in every organized community. Discipline has no right to question authority of the teacher. He must obey and try to understand the object.

Adesina (1990) Discipline has been observed as the readiness or ability to respect authority and observe conventional or established laws of the society or of any other organization. He later said that discipline implies self control, restrain, respect for self and respect for others.

ALu,Eya, Odo, Ede, and Ugwu (2001) say it is the influence exerted by society on the students, it is required for them to obey certain values and regulation, and behave in certain ways according to the norms and values of the society.

Akubue (1991) say that a good servant makes a good master, only he who knows how to obey will know how to command. Discipline implies subjection or subordination of ones own will to external authority. The habit of implicate homage to power has a natural tendency to convert one into a mere machine. He said also that discipline enforced in schools and colleges, it intended to encourage or foster habit of self discipline.

Alexander (1945) said that discipline is heavens first “law” this is also the first law in any school. Life is a preparatory stage for future well being and the much that is required there carries one through life. If one is ill-bed during his delicate stage, it will be realized that one ends up as a threat to the community. This paper is concerned mainly with the meanings given above because, discipline is very

important feature by which the quality of a school is judged. When a school lacks discipline, many facets of school activities are adversely affected, infact a school that has a poor discipline is likely also to have a poor public image, a poor fore, low morals among staff, frequent Quarrels and antisocial acts among student, poor performance in sports and also affect their performances in examination.

Ikedife (1987) state that discipline in any organizational set up has been recognized by many eminent professionals as a most dependable parameter for the measurement of the operational success of the system. Good behaviour is in fact the life blood of any system but the behaviour of these students range from trivial to the terrifying and from casual to the criminal. These days you see students and pupil smoking, stealing, dressing carelessly, insulting people and fighting one another.
