This paper compares data collected in a 1974 survey of discipline problems in Georgia secondary schools with data from a similar survey conducted by the same investigators in 1961. The 1961 survey examined 20 types of student misbehavior that had been identified in earlier studies; the 1974 survey included those 20 plus 13 additional items. The revised survey questionnaire was sent to the principals of 341 Georgia secondary schools during the spring of 1974, and a total of 266 (78 percent) responded. This compared to an 81 percent response rate in 1961. Although there were some definite differences between data from the two surveys, the most common types of student misbehavior in 1961 were also the most common in 1974. Included in the paper are a number of data tables that summarize responses to both surveys and facilitate comparisons between them. (JG)
