I believe students can be taught to self-discipline. Most students are naturally good, and with the right management plan being implemented by the teacher they can be conditioned to be idea students. Students should be viewed as being equals in the learning environment.
Similarly, a teacher without discipline in his life cannot be an ideal teacher. Discipline is the key to success - this saying holds true for all times and for all people of all age groups. But for students it holds a great value. In contemporary times there are so many temptations that can lure a student away from his basic objective in life.
