among students while others disagreed. Neve11heless, it becomes essential in recent times that

many schools have traded away discipline and as a result led to poor academic performance of

students. This study was carried out to establish the relationships between schools discipline and

students' academic performance. The study was conducted in Oye Ekiti Local govt., a town in

Ekiti State, Nigeria. The study employed cross sectional research survey design in which

upon students' academic performance/career, psyche and personality development. The study

concludes that the adoption of Corporal punishment has various effects on students psyche,

emotion and personality, this therefore resulted to student inability to relate well with their peers, and they become highly aggressive and at the same time affect their academic performances.
