ABSTRACT

The aimed of this study was to investigate on indiscipline behaviours and primary school pupils’ learning in Abi Local Government Area of Cross River State, Nigeria. To guide this study achieve its objectives, four hypotheses were formulated. Literature related to the variables under study were reviewed. Survey research design was adopted. A sample of 200 respondents was randomly sampled for the study. The modified Likert Scale questionnaire was the data collection instrument. Pearson Product Moment Correlation Coefficient was the statistical tool used to measure the data at 0.05 level of significance. The result of the analysis revealed that significant relationship exists between bullying, stealing, fighting, examination malpractice and pupils’ learning. Based on the result of the findings, recommendations and suggestions for further studies were made. Suggestions include that this same study could still be carried out but with a wider study area (say three to six Local Government Areas) so as to generalize to a larger sample size that would enhance better and more dependable generalization of result. It was also recommended that government should endeavour to provide adequate teaching and learning facilities so as to enable pupils’ to learn.
