The school is a mini replica of the society. It not only consists of the bricks and mortars. Its ecosystem also consists of the human beings, namely, the students, teachers, non-teaching staff members etc. The transactions at the school is thus not only an educational one, it is rather a very complex case of transactions where the social, economic, political and cultural spheres of human existence are intertwined with each other. Schooling, being an experience that introduces one to the bigger society outside, is also an arena where the training of many societal norms occur. The present paper is an attempt to understand some of the issues like imparting moral education and discipline that one encounters at the level of the school. It involves empirical knowledge gathered from the field by way of study of transactions at two different schools in Sambalpur City of Odisha. One of them is a Government School and the other is a private one.
