AbstractThe present study is intended to examine the adjustment problems of school students from urban and rural schools of Kurukshetra district, Haryana. Adjustment is a process by which a living organism maintains a balance between the needs and the circumstances. The variables included for the study apart from adjustment (fami l y, soc i a l, academic, financial and emotional) are age, gender, class, type of school etc. The study was conducted on a sample of 461 students (197 boys, 264 girls) randomly selected from the various government and private schools from urban and rural areas of Kurukshetra district, Haryana. A standa rdized questionna ire developed by Jain (1972) was adopted for this study. The data was analyzed to examine the influence of individual factors on adjustment variables. The major findings of the study have shown that adjustment of school children is primarily dependent on the school variables like the class in which they are studying, the medium of instruction present in the school, and the type of management of the school. Parental education and occupation of the school children also significantly influenced adjustment.
