TEACHERS SKILLS AND EXPOSURE ON THE ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE OF STUDENTS

CHAPTER ONE

1.0 INTRODUCTION

1.1 BACKGROUND OF STUDY

 

It is no doubt that good skills gives you the edge you need to be ahead in our society today. But exposure develop you morally and academically. The level of exposure of secondary school teachers vary from school to school.

This variation in the quality of teachers in the school might be as a result of the financial strength of the school.

Practically most expensive schools do better than the smaller ones in terms of academic performance of the students because of the quality of teachers they have. A school that is well equiped financially will have the money to pay for higher grade teacher with great experience in the academic field.

The level of experience plays a vital role on the students- teacher relationship. An exposed teacher understands the behavioural pattern of virtually their students.

History has it that in most of the inter-school compititions and other scholarship exams the schools withn higher grades of teachers with sound experience always do better than the mushroom schools in Nigeria.

Most students tends to model their best teachers, you could imagine in a school where the teachers are not good enough; how can they manage and mentor the students?

The level of exposure of the teachers in most of the secondary schools in Nigeria tends to help students performance in their academics.

1.2 STATEMENT OF PROBLEM

The performance of students in most secondary school tends to be very poor; reason being because of the level of experienced teachers in the schools. Most schools wish for an experienced teacher but because the can not spend more than what they earn, they can not go for teachers of higher exposure and level of acadmic qualification; they end up recruiting the group of teachers that they can pay little to work. Most parents want the best for their children but because of the level of their income they could not send their children to these big schools with teacher with higher level of exposure.

Parents sending their children to lower schools is economical but has a negative effect on the academic performance of the students.
