The study sought to investigate the relationship between drug abuse on students
behaviour and was driven by three objectives: To assess the types of drugs used by the
students at school and its effect on academic performance, to establish the various types
of indiscipline problems experienced in academic performance and to identify the ways
in which school management authorities deal with indiscipline students.
To achieve these objectives the researcher sampled 60 respondents from various schools
in Kabiyet divisions. The study utilized qualitative research methods; two data collection
instruments were used: Structured questionnaire and Interview guides. The collected data
was presented in tabular and analyzed statistically to decipher findings.
The major finding of the study was that students' behaviour was affected by several
factors such as peer pressure and drug abuse, Lack of parental guidance, adolescence
stress, school management and too much leisure. There was a need therefore for
stakeholders i.e. parents, teachers and government to ensure that good polices are put in
place to curb the use of drugs in school and community surrounding schools
The study indicated that the head teachers should properly compose a good committee
which can enforce discipline other than doing it himself authoritarian way.
