'n Internasionale perspektief op leerderdissipline in skole
AbstractAn international perspective on learner discipline in schools. Experience with disciplinary problems among learners in schools in three highly developed countries (USA, Great Britain, and Australia) has shown that disciplinary problems are not unique to certain countries and, generally speaking, they can and should be managed by means of pedagogical interventions. Also the solution to learners' disciplinary problems in South African schools does not appear to lie in an emulation of the theories and practices in developed countries. These countries themselves suffer from too many internal structural problems. A possible solution for disciplinary problems in South Africa lies in a correction of this country's social-structural problems, especially those leading to poverty or exorbitant wealth. Once such problems have been eradicated, learners will feel better about themselves and their situation. This in turn may lead to a decrease in anti-social behaviour.
