Discipline Study.
Finnegan, Harry
A questionnaire was used to help define student discipline, categorize and rank the concerns of different groups regarding student discipline, and provide examples of issues. The questionnaire asked citizens, parents, students, teachers, counselors, and principals to list the most important, second most important, and third most important problems regarding discipline and to provide examples of each problem. The results of the survey are presented by educational level--elementary, junior high, and senior high. Two charts are provided with each set of results. One chart ranks the top eight concerns of each group, the other displays the frequency with which the major categories were cited by the five groups surveyed. The sixteen categories the responses fell into are attendance; class size; discipline (control and supervision); discrimination; external influence; lack of parental guidance; lack of respect; miscellaneous; parent-teacher cooperation; physical abuse; rights and responsibilities (legal); smoking, drugs, and alcohol; staff behavior; student attitude; too much freedom; and vandalism and theft.
