That the effective classroom learning cannot occur unless the teachers are able to develop and implement discipline systematically by creating positive classroom climate with empathy, encouraging students to participate in academic learning and enhancing the development of the affective domain that it is to learn to understand others, and can live together with their classmates. It is due to the fact that the concepts of positive classroom management can prevent bad things, support good things and can correct the worst behaviors of the students.
