ABSTRACT 

The study aimed at investigating the influence of children's rights on the discipline of children in school in Kawempe division Kampala district. The following objectives guided the study; to investigate the state of discipline in school after abolishing corporal punishment; to investigate how discipline has affected academic performance and to investigate the ways in which bad conduct can be controlled in order to promote learning. Findings indicate that it was established that all schools teachers expressed that they themselves had to be role models to the pupils they teach. Twenty one teachers suggested that parents have to be sensitized about how to guide their children's behavior. Thirty four teachers said that they together with the parents had to counsel learners who are badly behaved. Lastly sixteen teachers said reward of well behaved children could help solve the problem. From the analysis also it was evident teachers are equipped with better ways of ensuring good discipline. This can in turn lead to good performance in class. Teachers had designed means to manage discipline in their organizations. Recommendations were made like teachers suggested that parents and teachers put efforts together to guide and counsel children when they show bad behavior, other than spanking them. Children's right must be made known to all stakeholders so that they are not violated. But at the same time, children have to be taught societal norms and values. They need to be taught to honest and to have self control in school and not of school. The school rules should also spell out clearly, the penalties for the offence of such rules.
