The present article is aiming to provide an overview on school wide discipline prevention in Romanian educational context and to identify existing practices to support and prevent school indiscipline in order to create a positive school environment which will facilitate learning. Participants included 114 teachers from primary and secondary schools and 5 stakeholders from ArgeÈ™ county, Romania. The main research questions investigated the school climate and addressed the assessment of existing practices in reducing student disruptive behavior and enhancing student competence and teacher classroom management in place in nowadays schools. The main findings of the research indicate a grow of disruptive behaviors and indiscipline in classrooms.
