Abstract

            Aggression of higher secondary school students is an issue of concern among stakeholders in education essentially because a school is an institution designed for teaching and learning. Students enrolled in higher secondary classes face regularly, self-imposed stresses and pressures mainly from the academic front and pressure from parents to earn top grades and excel in curricular and extracurricular activities and they are equipped with confusions about their career and future. These emotional disturbances often pave way to formation of various kinds of deviant behavior like aggression. This paper discusses about the Aggression of Higher Secondary Students in Vellore district, Tamilnadu. The sample consists of 1020 Higher Secondary School Students.  Aggression Questionnaire used in this study was developed and standardized by Buss and Perry (1992).
