"I'm against the behavior that many students enjoy listening to music whild doing other things."

Is the underlined "that" correctly used here? Can "behavior" be used in an appositive clause?

Thanks for your help!

It's not a natural use of "behaviour" (BrE spelling).

So what is the natural use of "behaviour" in this sentence? Can you help correct it?

Thanks again!

I don't know why you want to use 'behaviour' at all.

'I'm against students listening to music while doing other things.'
