This chapter shows that the disciplinary climates of Russian schools are associated with students' academic achievement and college expectations. Russian students who attend schools with fewer disciplinary problems perform better on combined math and science tests, and are more likely to plan to attend college than their peers at schools with more disciplinary problems. The chapter suggests that TIMSS survey questions are inherently subjective and may have overpredicted the extent of school disorder in Russia. Russian teachers hold their pupils to extremely high standards of behavior, in which slouching or speaking out of turn could be considered disruptive.
