Methods Used To Enhance Students Discipline In Public Secondary Schools In Kamukunji Division Nairobi Province, Kenya

There has been a wave of violence strikes that had threatened to paralyze learning in many Secondary Schools country wide. In the month of June 2007 over 300 strikes were reported. This saw students disrupt learning, besides destroying property worth millions of shilling. Indiscipline in schools had reached unmanageable levels, as teachers were unable to enforce discipline as their hands were tied by law as corporal punishment had been banned by the Government through legal notice No. 56 of 2001 in march. In light of this problem, the study aimed at identifying the discipline problems among the students and effectiveness of the methods used in enhancing student discipline in public secondary schools in Kamukunji Division, Nairobi Kenya.

The Study was carried out in Kamukunji Division, one of the eight Divisions found in Nairobi Province. Stratified random sampling was used to select the sample of schools, which include boys, girls and mixed schools. Three self- constructed questionnaires were used to gather data
pertaining to the specific methods used in enhancing student discipline. Data analysis was done and it was found out that various types of indiscipline existed in the schools. The y included truancy, drug abuse, absenteeism, sneaking, stealing and use of foul language.
