Approaches taken by educators in dealing with disruptive behaviors have been rather reactive and punitive and have not been effective in curtailing disruptions exhibited in the classrooms. In effect, they are just designed to react to the phenomenon rather than to prevent. For educators to win the battle over disruptive behavior, all school personnel must be committed to and work collectively and interdependently in promoting more positive learning environments, conducive to learning.
Hence, educators have to mobilize and strive towards fostering more motivating and goal oriented classrooms where students are inspired to work towards their educational goals. Studies also point to the fact that those classrooms tend to have less distractions and disorderly conduct and subsequently, yield greater positive outcomes. Thus effective classroom management strategies that will empower educators should be given utmost priority from all levels of the education system.
