Discipline is essential in class. Without it the educational process is difficult if not impossible. In this manner students and teachers will not meet curricula goals. There are and there will always be some kind of conflicts between teachers and students, but they should not evolve to become a problem that threatens achieving curricula aims. Teachers (especially elderly teachers) often express pessimism about contemporary students. They say that today's students have less knowledge and that they misbehave more often than previous generations. A research was conducted among students which tried to determine the rate of discipline in schools in Celje to see if these statements are true. Questionnaires were distributed to students of one primary and one high school in Celje, Slovenia. Answers were collected from 234 students. On the one hand, it was found out that senior high school students have the worst level of discipline of all the grades involved in the study. They themselves assess their class atmosphere as less disciplined. They report that teachers use a lot of time to calm the class down. All this is probably a factor in lower average mark that the senior high school students report to have. On the other hand, it was found out that teachers do not react to the disturbance or they are trying to be repressive. These are not the correct ways of dealing with discipline issues.
