Background of the Study
School is a social unit established by members of the society as a formal agency of education where people learn about the custom, attitudes and ways of doing things in their society. Laolu (2005) defined School in sociological context as the place where the culture of the people is transformed from one generation to another. Members of the wider society, including the operators of the educational system are governed by norms and laws that direct the affairs of an individual member. Such laws, according to Asaolu (2007), are meant to compel the entire members of the society to exhibit character that will conform to the societal laws and order. In order to ensure peaceful co-existence in schools, the authorities often make rules and regulations that guide and control the behavior of their girls students with a view of setting high standards of discipline conducive to the education process.
Akinpelu (1981) asserted that the infringement by any girls student on such established School rules and regulation constitute offences which are subject to appropriate retributive punishment. Indiscipline, to a novice is the opposite of discipline, but in a comprehensive form, indiscipline refers to improper behavior exhibit by an individual or group of people within the School or community. Olusegun (2005) defined indiscipline as the improper training of the mind and body which can produce desired control necessary for an individual to perform the positive roles required for the achievement of organization or community goals and aspirations. Johnson (2010) pointed out that indiscipline manifests in various ways such as disorderliness, smoking, examination malpractices, bullying, disobedience stealing and dishonesty. Amaele ( 2007) pointed out the following factors that promote indiscipline among the Secondary School girls girls students in rural communities in Nigeria; The teacher, like any other civil servants in Nigeria, is poorly paid and treated. To be able to make little improvement in his income, he has to run after some other money – earning ventures. This means that he will no longer be fully dedicated and committed to official duties. Such unethical behaviors like lateness, absenteeism, truancy, among others, which he would have taught otherwise by example, will appear real in the School. The poor conditions of service equally expose teachers to the point of demanding and receiving money from girls students and their parents. This situation equally exposes teachers to the point of demanding and receiving money from girls students and their parents. This situation equally makes them to engage in examination malpractice and other anti-social behaviors in Schools Another important factor which makes it difficult for Nigerian schools to inculcate discipline among the girls students most especially in rural communities is the day school system. Some of the girls students come from homes that are bundles of indiscipline. Apart from this, where an under-aged student leaves home in the morning for a journey of about thirty kilometers or more, this may encourage truancy and lateness. Some girls students also use the transition from home to school every day to cause different acts of immorality. Furthermore, Nigerian schools today place much emphasis on paper qualification. In fact, our school system is academic bias.
Statement of the Problem
The problem of this study is finding the causes of indiscipline among public girls secondary students , hence to proffer possible solution to the management of the cause of indiscipline prevails and things voluntarily work the normal way among the citizens. The acts of indiscipline therefore need to be curbed in our society and even among girls students in the secondary schools in Kano State in order to make things work the normal way.
