MAINTENANCE OF STUDENTS’ CODE OF CONDUCT IN DEVELOPING SCHOOL DISCIPLINE
This study was conducted to investigate the students’ conduct in developing school discipline at secondary school level. In this research paper, an attempt has been made to investigate the students’ conduct as perceived by the principals and class teacher, to compare the views of teacher’s position and experience regarding students’ conduct and to explore strategies for developing positive conduct amongst the students for secondary school discipline. A descriptive research design was adopted for the study. All the principals of boys’ secondary schools and their teachers of secondary classes (9th & 10th) of District Swabi, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa were the population of the study. Simple random Sampling technique was used for the selection of respondents. From 75 boys secondary schools, 22 principals and 39 teachers having experience more than 10 years responded to a self-developed questionnaire. Data were analyzed through frequency distribution, percentage, mean, standard deviation and t-test. Students’ conduct in schools and with their teachers was found below average and a significant difference exists between perceptions of school principals and teachers. Respondents with different experiences have similar views regarding students’ code of conduct. A proper code of conduct may be developed and displayed for developing school discipline and teacher should prove himself as a role model for students and psychological techniques should be used.
