Abstract

This quantitative study examined the perception of secondary school students on school rules and regulations in promoting acceptable behavior. Specifically, the study determines the perception of secondary school students on school regulations and rules as means of making them good citizens. Purposive, stratified and simple random sampling techniques were employed to obtain 240 respondents. Data were collected through questionnaires. The study findings revealed that most of students were aware that school rules and regulations can make them good citizens; many realize that offenders were punished to encourage them to obey the laws; most agreed that school regulations and rules encouraged co-operation and harmony in school and the nation. Based on the results a conclusion is that most respondents have the perception that school rules and regulations promote acceptable behavior among secondary school students. The study recommends that school rules and regulations need to be emphasized and further studies are required to critically assess the content of school rules and recommend the best content that can produce quality citizenry.
