Teachers’ Perception about Students Indulging in Deviant Behaviour
Deviant behaviour is a behaviour that violates the rules, understanding, or expectations of social system. This kind of deviant behaviour is mostly seen in school students. Therefore a study was conducted in order to find out the causes of deviant behaviour among students, its effects and ways to combat them. Since school students are more frequently around teachers of the school the information pertaining to this study was collected from the school teachers. For the purpose of this study an open ended interview schedule was prepared and data was collected from 50 school teachers. According to the study conducted 96% of the respondents sate that school students will indulge in deviant behaviour. According to the teachers the mostly seen deviant behaviours are disobeying elders, stealing, bunking classes, drug abuse etc. and this behaviour will show a great impact on their studies. This impact is either in the form of failure in the studies, they may drop out of school; they can seclude themselves from the other classmates, etc. They will start failing in exams and sometimes they might even dropout from school. From my study it was found that 40% of the students get in deviant behaviour due to improper parenting style, 26% due to family background, 22% of the students gets influenced by the media and the remaining 12% is due to friends circle and surrounding. This kind of deviant behaviour can be prevented by showing more love and care from parents and teachers, society should treat them equally instead of punishing them.
