ABSTRACT

This  study  investigated  the  factors  associated with mass failure of  students’  in  English  language  in  Senior Secondary  Schools using four schools in Ijebu-North Local Government, Ogun-State, Nigeria. The study employed qualitative and quantitative approaches. Data was collected using classroom observation, questionnaire and documentary review. Result of the study reveals that students were highly motivated to learn English  for  future  expectations  such  as  local  and  international  communication,  academic  advancement  and employment  prospects.  However,  students’  performance  was  affected  by  shortage  of  English  teachers  and absence of teaching and learning materials. The findings shows that presence of untrained, under-qualified, and poorly trained teachers in schools who were incompetent and as a result they fail to teach some difficult topics in the syllabus. Study  findings  also  indicated  that  students’  infrequent  use  of English  language  at  school  and  home, large class size, teachers’ responsibilities, poor conducive teaching and learning environment in the classrooms, limited home support environment and poverty were contributing  factors for poor performance in English Language. Based on this, the research recommends in-service teachers training to enhance  teachers  English  teaching  skills, equal distribution of English teachers, adequate teaching facilities, and conducive learning environment at the schools.
