Abstract

Behavior cases of students of gymnasiums, progymnasiums and real schools of Kyiv School District, related to immoral acts and antics as a part of students' everyday life, are systematized and characterized based on analysis of archival documents.

It is proved that the most common examples of such violations and antics is a number of acts that can be divided into the following categories: disciplinary and ethical violations, obscene antics, theft, drinking, swearing or using obscene words, smoking, playing cards, deeds related to violation of the concepts of those times about acceptability of entertainment and appearance for high school students, debauchery. Most of the data concerns disciplinary and ethical violations (extortion etc.) as well as theft. Some part of the deeds and violations had a material component (theft), protest component or component related to problems of adolescent growth (swearing, drinking, smoking, etc.), another parts - ethical component (lynching, relationships with the opposite sex). It is pointed out that such violations and antics occurred relatively often. The authot assumes that the reasons of such behavior could be not only the child's growing up, but also the teachers' not always tolerant attitude towards students and excessive regulation of student life. The article shows that such violations and deeds are less frequently mentioned in case of girls, and that not all of them were relevant for them, although some of girls cases also took place. It was clarified that consequences of such incidents were a variety of punishments, including arrest on school premises, solitary confinement, reduced grades for behavior or expulsion from school with a possibility to enter another one and plan a future career, or without it, which puts and end to a career. Despite the measures and punishments such cases were recorded throughout the whole duration of the Kyiv Educational District.
