ABSTRACT

The present study is intended to examine the adjustment problems of school students from Gujarati and English medium schools from Ahmedabad city. Adjustment is a process by which a living organism maintains a balance between the needs and the circumstances. The variables included for the study apart from adjustment are gender and type of school. The study was conducted on a sample of 120 students (60 boys, 60 girls) randomly selected from the various Gujarati and English medium schools from Ahmedabad city. A standardized student problems inventory developed by Ashwin Jansari (2011) was adopted for this study. The data was analyzed to examine the influence of individual factors on adjustment variables. The major findings of the study have shown that adjustment of school children is primarily dependent on the school variables like the medium of instruction present in the school, and gender of the children also significantly influenced adjustment problems. Mostly problems related to school going children can be identified as emotional disturbances, growth and development, scholastic underachievement and relationship related problem.
