Discipline in Secondary Schools in Western Australia.
Western Australia Education Dept., Perth.
This report reviews and discusses the results of an extensive year-long study of school discipline in Western Australian secondary schools. Through its investigation, the committee attempted to determine the nature and extent of disciplinary problems, to ascertain the factors contributing to these disciplinary problems, and to recommend measures for their resolution. Data for the study was compiled from case study reports on 73 "extremely deviant" students and from four separate questionnaires that were distributed to all secondary school teachers in Western Australia, administrators at all secondary schools in Western Australia, a randomly selected sample of secondary students, and a random sample of secondary students' parents. Detailed data from the case study reports and questionnaire responses are presented in numerous tables and graphs throughout the report, and a sample of each of the survey forms is included in the Appendix.
