CHAPTER ONE – INTRODUCTION

1.1       Background to the Study

The family is the child’s first place of contact with the world. The child as a result requires initial education and socialization from parents and other significant persons in the family. Agulana (2009) pointed out that the family lays the psychological, moral and spiritual foundation in the overall development of the child.

According to Fraza (2001), psychological home conditions arise mainly from illegitimacy of children, the label of adopted child, broken home, divorce and parental deviation. Such abnormal conditions of the family are likely to have a detrimental effect on the academic performance of the child. Schltz (2006) noted that if adolescents from unstable home, poor socio-economic status are compared with those from rich and stable homes, it would be seen that those from poor background have more social, academic and emotional problem.

Family Variables And Students’ Academic Performance

Scales and Roehkepartain (2003) are of the opinion that the family and its structure play a great role in children’s academic performance. Levin (2001) also state that children of unmarried parents, separated families, poor socio-economic status, low educational attainment and so on often fail and are at risk emotionally and academically. However, this may not be completely applicable in all instances of low family and home background as the children may work hard and become successful in life. Moreso, Ayodele (2006) stated that the environment where a child finds his/herself goes a long way to determining his learning ability and ultimately his/her academic performance in school.

Family Variables And Students’ Academic Performance

Furthermore, the family has been identified as an overwhelming factor affecting the students’ academic performance in schools. It would then appear that family variables such as socio-economic status of parents’, parents’ literacy level, occupation of parent and social class placement, if it is in poor condition may present a serious danger to the emotional, personality and mental adjustment of the young adolescent. These have a noticeable effect on students’ academic performance.

Therefore, this study was set to investigate the relationship between family variables and students academic performance in Agricultural science in selected secondary schools.
