EFFECTS OF SCHOOL GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION ON STUDENTS ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE IN SECONDARY SCHOOL

EFFECTS OF SCHOOL GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION ON STUDENTS ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE IN SECONDARY SCHOOL

CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
Background to the Study
Number of empirical studies has been done to determine the factors that influence
students‟ academic performances around the world. Hijazi and Raza, (2006) argued
that student‟s performance is associated with students‟ profile like his attitude towards class attendance, time allocation of studies, parent‟s level of income, mother‟s age and mother‟s education. Walters, et al., (1998) elaborated that students‟ performance is very much dependent on socio economic background (SEB).
Winston, et al., (2002) focused on student‟s impatience (his time-discount behavior)
that influences his own academic performance. Literature show that weak students
do better when grouped with other weak students. As implied by Zajonc‟s analysis of
older siblings (1976) it shows that students‟ performance improves if they are withthe students of their own kind. Mishaeloudis, (2001) explained the effects of age, qualification, distance from learning place on students‟ performance. Other researcher view factors like race, gender, sex as it affects student‟s performance.  (Hansen and Joe 2000).

Statement of the Problem
Basing on finding of various researchers, geographical location of school result into a
number of problems including; poor attendance, resulting in low achievement, increases of dropout rate, and amplifies a host of social problems (Debnath, et al 2010). Some educational experts argue that students who have not acquired an association between academics and life experiences do not feel that good school attendance is relevant to their future (Collins, 1982). Walter, (1998) contend that one of the factor that influence academic performance is school location/site of the school.
