The research aims to showing the students misbehaviors in formal and private primary schools according to the perceptions of class teachers working in Kayseri in 2006-2007 academic year The data has been collected with the questionnaire developed by the researcher based on review survey and expert ideas. Questionnaire is applied to 245 teachers in both types of the school. 79 of the teachers are working in private primary schools and 166 of them are working in the state schools. The questionnaire has been analyzed by calculating frequency, percentage and arithmetic mean by using SPSS (Statistical Packages for the Social Sciences) for Windows. There is no significant difference between the schools according to the result of frequencies. The most encountered misbehaviors are "Complaint about friends", "Talking without permission", "Studying without a plan", "Not listening to the teacher", "Doing other things during the lesson" and "Fighting with friends". The least unwanted behavior that the teachers faced with are "Cheating", "Eating something during the lesson", "Coming late to school", "Not respecting to teacher", "Taking and using friend's equipments without permission" and "Despising and excluding friends". Taking the Classroom Management course and sex, that can be thought as effecting variables of the frequency, doesn't make a significant difference in this study. (Contains 3 tables.)
