Abstract: Discipline is a vital ingredient for the success of students’ academic performance. The Government of Uganda through the Ministry of Education (MOE) has always set up commissions of inquiries anytime the secondary schools unrest become a great concern, especially when it leads to massive destruction of property and death of students. The Ministry of education has always wanted to get to the bottom of the matter and establish ways in which discipline can be enhanced. However, discipline in secondary schools has deteriorated in the past few years, especially since the ban of Corporal Punishments goals and it assumed to hinder economic and industrial development (MOE 2012). In spite of efforts by the schools, discipline vices are the order of the day and it may be assumed that it hampers good academic performance. The schools have also been experiencing students ‘discipline cases. Although there are many factors that constrain the academic performance, the factor of discipline has not been conclusively looked in to. It was therefore important and urgent to have an in-depth assessment of the role of discipline on academic performance in order to solve the problem. In view of the above, the task of this paper is to assess the constraints of discipline, ascertain the relationship between students’ discipline and academic performance, find out challenges faced by teachers in dealing with students’ discipline and develop recommendations for improving discipline in secondary schools Bukomansimbi district, Uganda.
