Factors Affecting the Poor Academic Performances of College Education Students The research consists of an investigation of students' behavior, attitudes, and home environment as it relates to misbehavior in school and the need for discipline. So that the study may be understood within the context of the existing work in the field, this chapter of the proposal presents a review of the research on school discipline. The review begins with a delineation of basic patterns of school misbehavior which is followed by an examination of research on factors that appear to be contributive to student misbehavior. The third section of the review examines research on discipline interventions commonly used by schools to remediate misbehavior and discusses their level of effectiveness. Student misbehavior is not unique to specific schools; rather, there are certain identifiable patterns of misbehavior that have been categorized and recorded in the existing literature on school discipline.
