Classroom discipline is a major concern to teachers, administrators, and the public. This article addresses causes, prevention, and intervention techniques for discipline problems. Causes of discipline problems include a lack of interest in the program, anger, worry, fear, shame, embarrassment, or frustration relating to a physical impairment or learning disability.
