Indiscipline among students has become so rampart that people freely criticize them. Teachers accuse them for want of respect. Parents are dissatisfied with them because they do not get good marks -in the examination and waste time in this and that. And if we talk about the students we see that they are angry with the authorities, they are displeased with their teachers, their parents.
Every day we read in newspaper about strikes, incidents of free fighting in educational institutions. Sometimes, these incidents take so u§ly turn that they come under control by police only. At times it also happens that students are put behind bars due to their aggressive activities.
What are the causes of this indiscipline? Students are the builders of nation. They are the symbol of creativity. When they indulge in destructive acts what will be the future of our country? Hence, we must sort out the reasons so that they may uproot in order to give a secured present and future to our students.
The greatest cause of the indiscipline among students is our defective educational system, where too much stress is given oni on the completion of the text-books within alloted time. As teachers are under pressure of completion of the text-books they just stop to give moral education to their students. As a result, character formation becomes secondary.
In absence of value based education, the future of young generation seems to be gloomy. It has been seen that when the youth finish their studies, they are half-educated and ill- paced. This situation promotes unemployment among them. Unemployment promotes depression many of our students are victims of this evil. If we want to uproot indiscipline among our youth class, basic change in the present education system is very important.
Nowadays, we see that our youth are getting addicted to television, a main source of spreading indiscipline among students. Violence on television affects children negatively. They become less sensitive to the pain and suffering of others. Not only this, they are encouraged to behave in aggressive ways towards others-whether they are their parents or teachers or relatives. Then comes film today's films dwell more on violence and other crimes which divert young minds.
Most of the parents today are working and have no time to discuss vital issues with their sons and daughters. They try to compensate for time with money. But money can not help instil good values. The fear barrier no longer exists in our society and parents easily give way to children's repeated demands without realising the consequences. This is a dangerous sign of decadence and anti-social ills.
In connection with solution of this problem there are several things which can be taken into action. First of all education system should be reformed. We must check overcrowding in classes so that a close rapport is established between the teachers and the students. Students must be taught the lessons of discipline and obedience from the very beginning along with the text books.
The teachers should also learn to behave well with the students. They should always try to give their best to the students and treat them like their own sons and daughters. To avoid indiscipline among students, it is the duty of parents, teachers and authorities to sit together and take some useful and appropriate actions in order to save them from getting spoiled.
It is very easy.for students to go astray if not guided by their parents and cools. Hence, they must be saved at any cost, for they are the ultimate hope of the nation.
