Dr. (Mrs.) Uduak Imo Ekpoh, Dr. Usang Bassey

The study explored the influence of school location on principals' management of teachers' indiscipline in Akwa Ibom State secondary schools, Nigeria. A survey design was adopted for the study. The study population comprised principals and Vice principals from 376 secondary schools. A sample of 450 principals and vice principals were drawn through stratified random sampling technique for the study. One hypothesis guided the study. A validated Likert type research instrument tagged "Management of Teachers' Indiscipline Questionnaire" (MTIQ) was used to elicit responses from the sample. Data collected were analyzed using independent t-test. Findings revealed that school location influences principals' management of indiscipline that were related to teaching activities, school attendance and school ethics but not for non- teaching activities. It was recommended that urban and rural principals should partner to enhance effective management of teachers' indiscipline for improved quality of teacher discipline in the school system.
