Abstract


The ship of progress of any country floats on the hard work and dedication of its young generation and its innovative thoughts. The student community plays a vital role in every society. It has always been recognised as a great force. Growing unrest and indiscipline among students is a matter of great concern. In recent years they have assumed alarming proportions. Student unrest is not confined to India alone. It is a worldwide problem. They are agitations, strikes, boycotts of classes etc., in schools, colleges, universities and other educational and training institutions now and then. Student unrest is a great threat to our system of education, training programmes and development. The students indulge in violence, arson, destruction of property. They use unfair means to get through the tests and examinations, insult their teachers, threat their invigilators and abuse the staff on any pretext. They want more freedom, rights, both legitimate and illegitimate. If these undesirable activities and indiscipline are allowed to go on unchecked, the whole education and training system would soon be paralysed. An attempt was made to analyse the causes of student unrest. Present paper, though theoretical has identified certain common causes of student unrest:_defective education system, aimless life and uncertain future, economic difficulties, excessive number of students in the class, defective teaching methods, indifference family members, unsuitable teachers, student union, lack of co-curricular and creative activities, defective examination system, elements of indiscipline in the society, inadequate funding of educational institution by government, international issues, plays significant role in the development of student unrest.
