Abstract


This study aimed at determining the relationship between principals’ leadership styles and teachers’ indiscipline in Ebonyi State of Nigeria. Three research questions guided the study. Two sets of questionnaire, the Principals’ Leadership Style Descriptive Questionnaire (PLSDQ) and the Teachers’ Indiscipline Descriptive Questionnaire (TIDQ) were constructed by the researcher, and they were validated by three experts. Descriptive Survey design was adopted. A sample size of 120 teachers was used. Mean score and pearson product moment correlation were used to provide answers to the research questions.
