ABSTRACT
The study investigated the strategies for curbing maladjustment behaviour of public primary schools pupils in Ogoja Education Authority of Cross River State. The study sought answers to four research questions and two hypotheses. The population of the study was 1419 made of 700 male teachers and 719 female teachers.
