The aim of this study was to examine students' and teachers' attitudes toward disruptive behaviour and to compare the views of the participants from Nigeria and England. Two hundred and eighty five (285) students and 41 teachers from high school completed the disruptive behaviour which contains behaviours commonly reported in high schools. These questionnaires measure individual's attitudes toward behaviour problems. The results depict that significant difference was found among nationality, gender, student and teacher toward disruptive behaviour. Nationality also significantly predicted disruptive behaviour. The implications of the findings of students' and teachers' perceptions to disruptive behaviours in classroom are discussed.
