ABSTRACT

         The study investigated Teacher’s Perception of Techniques for Handling Disciplinary Problems in Ilorin Metropolis. It also sought to compare the respondents by sex, experience, educational qualification and location of the schools.

         The instrument used in carrying out the research work was checked by some lecturers in the National Teacher’s Institute of which the instrument yielded 0.69. The data collected were analysed using chi-square and Pearson Product Moment Correlation Co-efficient at 0.05 level of significance.

         The results indicated that the techniques of handling disciplinary problems could be reinforcement; punishment and modeling among others are very essential. It was also revealed that there were no significant differences in the teachers’ perception of techniques for handling disciplinary problems on the basis of sex experience. However, significant differences were observed on the basis of educational qualifications and school locations.

         Based on the findings, it was recommended that in addition to the methods been used to control disciplinary problems counsellors should organized joint seminars and workshops for principals and teachers on the negative effects of administration of the techniques. The government should support teachers and principals by providing reinforcement such as rewards, prizes, awards, scholarship to encourage desirable behaviour and to minimize unacceptable ones.
