    DescriptionThe study's lead author, Chris Baumann, an associate professor at Macquarie University, said the study showed that Australian classrooms should return to the stricter disciplines that preceded the introduction of tolerant education in the 1970s.

    In the latest study “School Discipline, School Uniforms, and Academic Achievements” published in the International Journal of Educational Management, researchers used OECD data on classroom discipline and found that countries with strict discipline are academically represented. The best country. They also found that school uniforms are associated with better discipline in the classroom.

    Professor Baumann said: "This argument does not mean that we must be super strict. Of course we must care about our students and have a method of love, but it seems that discipline has been neglected."

    Related research "Working ethics formed by teaching methods" was published in this year's Asia Pacific Business Review, which found that strict discipline in all Asian countries surveyed is a strong work ethic of statistical discovery. The obvious driving force, work ethic is defined as working with a positive attitude.
