1.1       Background of the Study

Indiscipline behaviours have impacted negatively on academic performance in mathematics among primary school pupils. According to Ntem (2002), Indiscipline behaviours is an age long problem affecting youth especially their academic performance in schools. The matter, that is, indiscipline behaviours has become a matter of growing concern to parents, educators, spiritual land community leaders, law enforcement agencies and political leaders. Accordingly, indiscipline behaviours pose a threat to society. It is a pitiable sight that today’s youths of our land, which are tomorrow’s adults of the nation are increasingly seen entrenching themselves in the path of indiscipline. These behaviours affect their studies in school thus leading to a poor academic performance in mathematics in primary schools.

Indiscipline Behaviours And Academic Performance Among Primary School Pupils

Indiscipline behaviours by pupils are one of the problems affecting pupils habits in school. Behaviours such as vandalism, truancy, stealing, violence at home, lying, examination malpractice for the senior primary and the general deviance behaviours in school and homes contribute greatly to pupils’ poor academic performance in mathematics in primary schools. This view is shared by Ntukidem (2005) who observed that some children are spoilt too much and that parents tend to give the children all they demand. Thus, as stated by the author, the child can do damages if ever it happens that the parent does not give him/her what he/she asks for. The child becomes stubborn and determined to have everything. But such hebaviour is not adequate. At school too he/she will tend to be authoritative and this could be difficult to maintain discipline with the child. This will, in turn, affects the pupils’ study habit in both home and school and consequently attendance, the pupils may join peer groups which encourage socially unacceptable behaviours. They form and lead the group of truant pupils and this discourages learning and has negative attitudes to what the school values highly which is discipline and high academic work.

Thus, indiscipline behaviours lead to a poor academic performance in mathematics among primary school pupils. It is against this background and more than the researcher attempt to examine indiscipline behaviours and academic performance in mathematics among primary school pupils in Ibesikpo Asutan Local Government Area.

1.2       Statement of the Problem

Primary school pupils have not been able to progress steadily in the study of mathematics in schools. This is due partly to indiscipline behaviours exhibited by the pupils themselves. Obviously, pupils in the various primary schools show indiscipline behaviours such as disobedience, truancy, dishonesty, stealing, general wickedness, bullying, fighting, and other deviant behaviours. Indiscipline cases are so common among pupils of the primary school. They are undoubtedly caused by certain factors such as the school, home and peer group influence to mention but few. It should be noted that children are not born with indiscipline behaviours, neither could it be hereditary, but most of these behaviours are practiced and learn overtime till it becomes habit forming. Consequently, the end or result is that these behaviours affect pupils’ study habit, class attendance, academic concentration, and general discipline life.

The authorities also have failed to provide school counsellors which would have provided quality and nice counsel to these pupils. In addition, the researcher has discovered that a proper provision of consistent and loving guidance and training of these indiscipline pupils can positively change their indiscipline behaviours thus improve their academic performance in mathematics in primary schools. Therefore, with these and other problems, the study investigates indiscipline behaviours and academic performance in mathematics among primary school pupils in Ibesikpo Asutan Local Government Area.

1.3       Purpose of the Study 

The main purpose of this study was to examine indiscipline behaviours and academic performance in mathematics among primary school pupils. The specific objectives of this study include:

  1. To determine the effect of examination in dishonesty on academic performance in mathematics among primary school pupils.
  2. To assess the effect of truancy on academic performance in mathematics among primary school pupils.
  3. To examine the effect of lateness on academic performance in mathematics among primary school pupils.
