The Challenges of Managing Student Behavior Problems in the Classroom
Abebe, Solomon; Hailemariam, Assegedech
Online Submission
Student behavior problems are challenging at all levels in school. The purpose of this article was to determine the type, prevalence and complex nature of student behavior problems and its impact on teaching and learning. Archival data for discipline referrals in a middle school were examined. Data indicated that "Insubordination" was the most frequent referral reason followed by"Disruption of school/class activity" for both regular and special education students. Referrals for "Use of violence" and "Vulgar language" were infrequent for both groups. More referrals were issued to males (74% regular and 91% special education) than girls. The highest incidence of behavior problems occurred during the lunch period. Parental and school factors that contribute to student behavior problems are suggested and intervention and prevention strategies that have been successful in similar cases are discussed.
