Keywords:assessment, freedom walls, promotional tool, vandalism
Vandalism is the malicious act of destroying other properties. People who are responsible for vandalism do not care about the community and do not think wisely before they take an action. The worst thing is when people do it for fun without thinking that it may cause a lasting effect on society. Maintaining the surroundings clean is important; therefore, researchers conducted this study to provide a solution to this problem. This study used a descriptive research design and survey method to gather information from grade 12 Accountancy, Business, and Management (ABM)students. Data were collected by distributing questionnaires to the target respondents. Researchers selected 3 respondents from grade 12 ABM sections 1–14 and 2 respondents from sections 15–18, with a total of 50 respondents. The result of this study revealed that the freedom wall can eliminate vandalism and developed the cleanliness and discipline of the students. Researchers found out that (1) family problem and boredom are a factor that influences people in doing vandalism. Students express their fear, guilt, and hatred through vandalism. (2) Desire of expression and discrimination are also factors why people vandalize. The researchers suggested that students must know the importance of cleanliness and having good discipline when using other properties. Teachers should encourage their students to be aware of the case of vandalism. The school administrators should empower this study to prevent vandalism and for the future researchers that this study will serve as a guide and their reference.
