Discipline and management are frequently cited as the greatest dilemma facing public schools today. In the Annual Gallop Poll of Public's Attitudes Toward the Public Schools, respondents consistently ranked discipline as the major problem confronting American education. For 16 of the 17 years, the United States public has ranked school discipline as the number-one educational problem in the public school system. School teachers in the United States reported that discipline interfered with their teaching to a moderate or great extent (Bauer, 1985). Brophy and Putnam (1978) listed classroom management as the first or second major concern among teachers. Studies indicate that few teachers feel prepared to deal with the issues of maintaining and organizing a classroom so that it operates smoothly (Brophy & Putnam, 1978; Emmer, et al., 1979; Paine, 1983).
