THE IMPACT OF DEVIANT BEHAVIOURS ON ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE AMONG SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS IN OVIA SOUTH WEST LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREA OF EDO STATE
ABSRACT

The purpose of this study is to find out some of the deviant behaviours common in some secondary school in Ovia South West Local Government Area of Edo State and how they can be eradicated or minimized.
The information contained in this project work is the result of my personal observations, oral interview and questionnaires to persons mostly teachers and students of the selected schools.
The result showed that the commonest deviant behaviours are assaults and insults of both teachers and parents, uses of charms, fighting, dishonesty, disobedience, drug offences, mass demonstration, sex offences, stealing, wickedness and indiscipline.
This is as a result of bad staffing, harsh rules, bad home influences, poor school, physical condition, poor environment, bad peer groups, lack and poor school materials, such as text books and seats. Trace was also made to children from broken homes, poor family background and children keeping bad companies with peer groups.
To each of these problems, a solution has been suggested. If these suggestions are applied by parents/guardians and teachers, the problem of deviant behavior will be reduced drastically in the country and in the selected schools in Ovia South West Local Government Area of Edo State in particular.

CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
Background to the study
In the past, due to the size of the selected school regard compulsory education child labour laws, deviant behaviours has been a problem to the school, society, community, which they have always found difficult to handle.
Deviant behavior can be defined as not keeping to the rules or norms of the society. The terms deviant behavior is a kind of behavior portraying a departure from social norms.
According to longman dictionary of contemporary English (2009) deviant behavior is different in a bad way, from what is considered normal of a particular people, society or community. That is turning aside or away from set down rules of political system or principal of a given society.
It has been observed that quite a number of students in secondary school of learning are deviant, they become deviant when they engage in activities which are neither under the supervisor or control of the home nor of the society or that of the school. Such behavior include crimes, drunkenness, indiscipline in schools, abortion, prostitution, drug addiction, gambling and absenteeism in school, corruption and many others.  Deviant behaviours have a negative impact on students psychological adjustment and development, but may also disturb the school environment and disorganize the flow of education process.
Academic performance can be seen as indicator that show how well the student is doing in the school or progress, understood as the level of learning, comprehension and consolidation of the school curriculum. It has been found that psychological factors that mainly influence academic performance include instrinct  motivation, perceived competence, perceive control and self esteem. The family factors consist of family attitude and beliefs towards schooling, parental expectation of academic success, parental supervision and education, family structure, discipline practices and family stressors such as poverty, homelessness, illness, e.t.c. The most prominent factors are general school climate, comprehensive curriculum plans, school wide assessments, specific school-based programmes, social skills instructions, school based social services, teacher’s pedagogical skills and teacher belief or attitudes. Also the social factors refer to socio economic status, culture and utilization of leisure time. All are the factors that influence academic performance.
Nigerian society today is developing; therefore it requires an educational system that will ensure her development. Hence Nigerian educational system must stimulate the spirit of patriotism and laid the solid foundation for national and international understanding and cooperation in our children. Due to this fact, the education of the youth is very important in order to ensure the continuation of the citizens of social and economic development of the country as well as raising the standard of living generally to the well being of the people.
The family as an agent of socialization could have significant impact on the child. This is evidence from the fact that it is first learns about leadership and what it takes also basic skills and behavioural patterns have been taught by parents in the home.
The school as an agent of socialization and training institutions for our future leaders and manpower needed in our society, is also faced with acute problem, which also affect behavior, which is a form of indiscipline. The school as an agent should be able to deliver humanitarian service, which is geared towards the betterment of the government and the society, such as abilities to teach morals, punctuality, honesty, loyalty, regularity and dedication. This implies that the school should be able to produce disciplined pupils who will later become good citizens who are free from any deviancy.
