(2) How does the teacher’s authority or power in the classroom help to manage students’ indiscipline? (3)What challenges do teachers face in the classroom in managing students’ indiscipline? Descriptive case study survey research design was used for the study. Closed-ended questionnaires were used. A sample of sixty 60) teachers was given questionnaires to answer and data was collected and analyzed using descriptive statistics like percentages, frequencies.
