    DescriptionAccording to the Sydney Morning Herald, this discovery may help the Australian education system improve students' declining academic performance. Chris Baumann, the lead author of the two studies and an associate professor at Macquarie University, said the findings suggest that Australia should return to a disciplined approach to teaching that was replaced by “freedom” education in the 1970s.

    His latest research, "School Discipline, School Uniforms, and Academic Performance," has been published in the International Journal of Educational Management. The study, which examined school discipline in OECD countries, found that countries with strict high standards of discipline had the best student scores. The study also found that school uniforms are also related to classroom discipline.

    “It doesn't mean we have to implement very strict discipline. Of course we have to take care of the students in a caring way,” Bowman said. “But our discipline seems to be a bit lax.”
