CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY

Education in this country and outside have over these years geared up. Importance should be attached to the level of performance of boys, girls school and co-educational secondary schools in English language. It is not often realized that the type of secondary school purely on the basis of sex can have a tremendous effect on student’s level of performance in English Language. This is more so, in a society like ours, where English is the language of instruction in schools. The language of trade and an accepted medium of communication in all facets of life.

It is therefore, important to find out whether any relationship exists between secondary schools type, on the basis of sex and students achievement in English Language in West Africa School Certificate Examinations. This study considered schools in Ikere Local Government Area.

STATEMENT OF PROBLEM

It is common knowledge that some girl’s secondary schools are predominantly staffed by female teachers, while some boy’s secondary schools on the other hand are mostly staffed by male teachers. However, research has shown that female teachers pay greater attention to female students, while male teachers pay greater attention to male students in the process of classroom interaction. The findings in the area of mixed secondary schools are not at all clear. The fact that secondary school is purely girls or boys or mixed secondary school could affect student’s performance in English Language.
