ABSTRACT

This study was conducted to determine the relationship between discipline and the academic

performance of pupils in Primary schools by taking the case of Lambwe Division in Suba

District. The study particularly sought to establish the relationship that exists between

discipline and the poor academic performance of pupils in Primary Schools.

The study was conducted by correlation research design, data collected during the month of

May 2008 using questionnaire responses from 200 respondents consisting of 160 pupils, 20

assistant teachers, 5 head teachers and 15 class parents’ representatives randomly selected from

the accessible population. The data was analyzed using correlation and percentage distribution

technique using bar graphs.

The study establishes that there is significant relationship between the degree of discipline and

the level of academic performance and that the pupils have been performing poorly in the

National Examinations due to the rampant indiscipline prevalent in the schools. The study

concludes that discipline must be improved in our schools and therefore recommends that some

strategies be used like involving pupils in planning and decision making of matters, allowing

free discussion between pupils, teachers and parents and identifying and rewarding distinguished well behaved pupils in the school among others.
