Examining how pupil-mutiny constitutes a security-threat for secondary school teachers
The paper interrogates how current secondary school teachers contain pupil-mutiny, as it constitutes a security–threat for them and others. The paper is both conceptual and empirical in nature. This is the qualitative case study design. Interviewing technique and document analyses were used to collect data from three selected secondary schools that have very recently faced an unabated pupil-mutiny. Research findings reveal that firstly, pupil-mutiny could come in the form of irregular lesson attendance by pupils. Secondly, pupil-mutiny could assume an ongoing lesson disruptions by pupils. Thirdly, that the hostile schooling environment could incubate pupil-mutiny. Fourthly, adolescence stage engulfing myriad secondary school pupils has an impact on their mutinous behaviour. Lastly, uninspiring lesson delivery inside the classroom instigates pupil-mutiny. The researcher recommends that to salvage the future of myriad pupils, all forms of pupil mutinous behaviour have to be opposed and defeated.
