Absenteeism is a tendency to be away from work or school without a good reason: the perform or habit of being absent from work or school (Merrimum.dictionary). This study view absenteeism as students who are not come in college regularly and not attend classes. Doyle, reported that the main reasons for absence are: the lesson content that is not planned and unattractiveness of the teacher’s speech are ineffective in increasing the absence of students in class Silver, ET (2010). Inappropriate time of class, and poor contents, are the reasons for their absence Flemming, N (2014). In Jahrom University of Medical Sciences, reported that inappropriate teaching method and little class efficiency are the factors that affect the absence Karami, M (2013). Other factors that increase absenteeism are lower subject interes, poor and boring teaching technique, unfavorable environment, extreme student socialization, Kottasz, R; Obeng-Denteh, W (2011);Bati AH (2013); Cook, DA 2005; Fernades, L (2008). This issue disrupts the teaching-learning dynamic environment and converts it into a dull and unpleasant one of student dropout Silver, ET (2010)
The process or a period of changing from one state or conditions to another (Merrimum.dictionary). The transition from high school to the college culture is often complex and difficult, with challenges for all parties involved (Briggs, 2012; Yam, 2010; Lawrence, 2005; Kremer, 2001; Krause, 2001). Students’ academic success is largely dependent on successful transitioning in the first year (Briggs, 2012). Problems encountered during the transition period are now being compounded by the increased student population with diverse backgrounds (Doring, Bingham & Bramwell-Vial, 1997). The change to student-centred learning calls for early student engagement, especially during the transition phase in their first year, in order to help the students adapt to college learning (Krause, 2005).
1.4.3 Student Discipline
The term ‘discipline’ comes from the word ‘discipulus’ in Latin which means teaching and learning. The term has the essence of control in it and means “to teach someone to obey rules and control their behavior or to punish someone in order to keep order and control” (Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English, 2005, p. 443); and thus it is mostly connoted with punishment in case of disobedience. Poor classroom management led to arguments, fights, and classroom disruptions during instruction time, which made it difficult to learn students make decision to leave or choose to droupout Lagto, (2005). Student discipline problems occur when a student refuses to obey rules of the classroom or school. Students’ misconduct in the classroom interferes with teaching and learning and is thought to be precursor to later school dropout and similar negative social outcomes. All students must be aware and prudent of the rules before disciplinary action can be administered. Franken, R.E. (1998). The noisiest students will demonstrate their frustration by loud outbursts, disruptive behavior,
