ABSTRACT

Children spend half of their waking time in schools at a time when they are the most active and supple in their lives. Their role in Indian schools is very passive and they are forced to be in the environment, subject to its physical facilities especially water, light, toilet facilities, spaciousness and cleanliness of the building and premises. This research studies how these physical factors affect children’s aggression level.  Data was collected from 100 school students aged between 13 to 16years, studying in both private and government schools. It was found that cleanliness of the school building, especially of toilets was significantly related to aggression while lighting, drinking water, and spaciousness were not significantly related to aggression.
