Discipline before learning

A doctor who lost his family on a plane crash/terrorism 20 years ago created a school in his daughter's name. Discipline must exist, he says, before there can be learning. Why is this not understood here? The answer everyone says is smaller and smaller classes, but if there is no self-discipline it doesn't matter how small the classes are.

"Unless we impart the discipline, I don't think we can bring out the best out of any kid, not any human being, as a matter of fact," Sankurathri says. "So discipline comes first and then comes education to me."
