Deviant Behavior in School Setting

Egemen Hanımoğlu


Deviant behavior has become a daunting problem lately. More pupils are displaying abnormal behavior and thus destabilizing learning processes within school settings. It is a well-known fact that teenagers usually learn how to adapt to society and that aberrant behavior may lead to problems with conformity to societal values. Although the main causes of deviant behavior have been elucidated, the problem, despite numerous studies, deviant behavior has not been fully understood by scholars. The notion of deviance is closely related to the definition of the social norm which was defined almost a hundred years ago. The present study aims to examine causes and effects of deviant behavior, and identify main strategies to combat the issue. The research methods employed included a theoretical framework analysis, literature review, and qualitative research. A set of recommendations for the teenagers with deviant behaviour and their parents were identified to help them adjust to society.
