ABSTRACT

This study examined risky behaviour adopted by the young people in selected primary schools, and how this has affected their academic progress in the Makindye east division of Kampala District. The researcher adopted the following objectives for the study; to investigate the common types of risky behaviour adopted by youth, to find out why the youth have adopted such risky behaviour and to assess the negative outcomes of the youth's risky behaviour. Using a convenient sampling technique, a total of twenty-four respondents were picked at random to participate in this study. Quantitative and qualitative methods were also used in this study. Finding in the study established that the rate of crime and violence amongst the young people of school-going age was moderate as per seventeen teachers, although three teachers rated it as high. It was also established that due to poverty, some children fail to enroll in school. Also findings shows that fewer schools offered parents and caregivers support in effective parenting even fewer schools offered vocational skills to young boys and girls, that just in case they do not make it they can continue earning a living. Recommendations were also made. Remedial education to those young boys and girls who have already adopted at risk behavior must be provided. This therefore calls for school based diagnosis.
