dc.description.abstract This study is concerned with making a direct comparison of the patterns and trends of student discipline problems in Malawi secondary schools and to what extent these are related to the beliefs, values and opinions of sampled students, educators and non-educators. In order to serve as a tool for identifying potential discipline problems and suggest corrective actions, and by extension, improving the day-to-day administration of schools; these cases should be properly documented. The study was divided into two separate activities: (1) three separate questionnaire surveys and (2) annual discipline case count for four consecutive years 1987-1990 school years. In order to serve the purpose of the study, attempts are made to ensure that these two activities precisely convey the vital characteristics of student behavioral problems. In addition, a linkage between the various components of the study is drawn so that the impact of changes within one component on others can be monitored. (Abstract shortened by UMI.)
