Abstract: 
The management of discipline problems has become a current issue in Singapore schools. Previous studies showed that the situation seemed to be deteriorating. Such results suggest that future teachers need to be well-trained in understanding and handling possible discipline problems in schools. The present study investigated trainee teachers’ views on different aspects of discipline problems in schools. These trainee teachers who had undergone teaching practice in schools were asked to identify the most common discipline problems they had encountered and the seriousness of these problems. They were also asked to evaluate the effectiveness of various management strategies used to deal with these discipline problems. The responses of these trainee teachers were compared to the answers of experienced teachers from Singapore schools.
