Abstract

The 79-page book, Teachers as Agents of Pupil Indiscipline (University of Zambia Press, 2013) is filled with African and European studies that reveal the sources of pupil and teacher indiscipline and how these affect learner behaviour. The author also presents global research evidence on the common cases of pupil and teacher indiscipline in secondary schools. The main objective of the book is to bring to the attention of the reader how teacher indiscipline affects the academic performance of learners in school. The author argues that teacher indiscipline gives birth to learner indiscipline as supported by qualatative study.
