Causes of Indiscipline
The Loss of Leadership by Teachers
The teachers are unable to provide effective leadership to the students and in the absence of such leadership the problem of indiscipline is bound to crop up. Failure on the part of teachers to take active part in the struggle for freedom, sweeping criticism of the present system of education and of teachers; their inadequate salaries and the frustration caused by it; entry of unqualified persons in the teaching profession; control of politicians over educational institutions and the acceptance of tuitions on an almost commercial scale by the teachers are considered to be some of the major factors which have led to their loss of leadership an going the student community. Strained personal relations between the staff and the head have also an adverse effect on the minds of the students.

There is a general fall of morality in the different walks of life. It should always be remembered that the discipline in the school is greatly affected by the tone of discipline of the society as a whole.
