EFFECTS OF TRANSPORT PROBLEMS ON STUDENTS ATTENDANCE IN SECONDARY SCHOOLS
Background of the Study
In order to provide education for all, the government and other stakeholders including
parents and educators are constantly examining for the best solutions that may improve
education system. The establishment of Community secondary schools is one of the
solutions to access and acquire quality education for young generation. The success of
those community secondary schools in achieving their initial responsibilities of educating and socializing students depend on students to attend school regularly and punctually. According to Jones (2006) attendance is priority for educators. Good attendance will indicate to educators an individual that needs help, what changes in teaching to make, which behaviors are to be encouraged or suppressed and which schools need to advance. Committed facilitators take students attendance before teaching their subjects to determine the number of students who received their lessons. Also parents and school authority use student attendance to monitor, control and supervise students’ activities in schools.
Students ought to be present in school so that to benefit from the academic program in
its totality. Lowly attendance for students may facilitate weakness in achieving quality
education for graduates hence to affect community development. Student on attendance
is a problem that broadens outside the school. It affects the student, his or her family, and the community.
Statement of the problem
Transport is one of the major problem facing students in Ekiti State to attend their classes at specific time due to distance where the schools allocated. It is difficult for students to get to school in the morning as adult people and bus operators compete
with them to board the public buses (Onyango, 2012). Transport has consistently caused problems for students although the government is trying to make effort to improve it.
The government has introduced city train and it is in the process to launch Bus Rapid
Transit (BRT) for transport accessibility for all users but these cannot save transport for
students since both are directed to the Central Business District (CBD) where few
community secondary schools are allocated.
