Title: A study of decision making processes with regard to discipline in senior secondary schools: a case study in the Tano North District
Authors: Oduro, Richard
Issue Date: 8-Aug-2007
Abstract: The study looked into the decision making processes with regard to discipline in senior secondary schools using Tano North District as a case study. In all the schools, 100 and 44 respondents were sampled using the stratified and purposive sampling techniques. The research instruments for the study were questionnaire and interviews. An attempt was made to find out the extent of seriousness and how often acts of student indiscipline occur in the schools. Again, the researcher tried to find out how often heads of school follow the steps in the decision making processes on acts of student indiscipline in the schools. The research revealed that there are some indisciplinary acts in the schools that were serious and keep on occurring in the schools. There are students who run away to town, absent themselves from classes and cheat in examinations. Again, heads of school have been following the steps in the decision making processes on acts of student indiscipline in the schools. It also revealed that heads of school do involve teachers and students in decision making processes on acts of student indiscipline. It is recommended that heads of school should enforce the Ghana Education Service code of discipline for senior secondary schools but in some situations, they have to be allowed to use their own discretion to decide the type of punishments they mete out to the students. The heads of school should ensure that teachers and students are fully involved in the decision making processes with regard to discipline in the schools.
