Abstract

Disruptive student behavior is a subject of increasing concern to educators and citizens throughout our society. The success and/or failure of teachers and other school officials is often judged in terms of their ability to maintain effective pupil control. The maintenance of order and discipline in the classroom is at the top of the list of problems which teachers consider to be their major difficulties. As the educational head of the elementary public school, the elementary principal is responsible to maintain good pupil discipline. The elementary principal may find it necessary to deal with problems during school hours and before or after school hours. The elementary principal is perhaps the single most influential person in the school with regard to the school's atmosphere or discipline. Since discipline is related to learning, and occupies a large percentage of the principal's time, the writer has chosen to explore the role of the principal as a disciplinarian.
