Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this study was to determine if students' school-related attitudes are significantly affected by teacher classroom discipline management based upon concepts contained in Judicious Discipline: A Constitutional Perspective for School Rules (Gathercoal, 1986). The data relative to student school-related attitudes of elementary, middle, and high school students toward classroom management based upon Judicious Discipline were collected by means of a self report questionnaire. Workshops and inservice sessions were conducted by Gathercoal, the author of Judicious Discipline (1986), to disseminate the concepts within the book to administrators and teachers. The teachers involved in this study implemented these concepts into their classroom discipline management practice. The population for this study was comprised of a random sample of students from cooperating school districts of Beaverton, Corvallis and Yamhill/Carlton in the State of Oregon. A one-way analysis of variance test and a Tukey's test was used to analyze the data to test hypothesized relationships at the .05 level of significance. For the purpose of this study, eight hypotheses were tested to determine.if there exists a significant difference in attitudes among and between elementary, middle, and high school students reflected in pre- and post-test scores. Four attitudinal scales measured students' attitudes toward the teacher, toward school, toward their classmates, and toward themselves. Four hypotheses were found to be statistically significant. The results of this study indicate that students' attitude scores toward the teacher were affected by teacher classroom management based upon Judicious Discipline. In view of the findings, it is recommended that teachers make their consistent disciplinary decisions based on the concepts of Judicious Discipline.
