Abstract


Contemporary behavioural issues are seemingly causing many setbacks to educational attainments in the society today. These issues are mostly associated with cases of indiscipline both in school and the society. In schools today, indiscipline which is one among the major contemporary issues that seems to cause a lot of setback in education. It stems from cultism, gangsterism, drug abuse, sexual promiscuity, truancy, cheating and bullying, thuggery among others. This issue has become so alarming in schools that students hardly have time for their studies. In most cases, some are distracted by these issues to the extent of not seeking to further their education. The major thrust of this study is to examine the contemporary issues affecting educational attainment. The paper looked at the concept of contemporary behavioural issues, educational attainment such as: cultism, drug abuse, sexual promiscuity, examination malpractice, bullying, indecent dressing and thuggery in terms of their negative influence on the educational development of the students and the way forward. A survey research design was employed for the study.
