Learner misconduct in public schools continues to be a source of problems for teachers, principals and parents. It is of grave concern to educationalists nationally and internationally. Its persistence, despite all efforts to curb it, presents a serious challenge to the existence of a future society built upon sound moral, cultural and Christian values. This special edition of Koers - Bulletin for Christian Scholarship on learner misconduct in public schools centres on current local and international debates on learner misconduct. It provides a forum for educationalists, locally and internationally, to engage with this issue from a multidisciplinary perspective, not just in a general way but in a deeper and more profound manner. In essence, the articles in this issue concern themselves not only with the state of learner discipline in public schools but also with the Christian perspective as a lens through which to view this problem. Whilst the articles aim to provide readers with a broad array of perspectives on learner misconduct, the principle of positive discipline is foregrounded in the arguments.
