Abstract



This research work is a survey of Factors
Responsible for low Enrolment of Student in science in colleges of education in
colleges of education in Enugu State. It aims at finding out the various
factors responsible for low enrolment of students in science education in
colleges of education in Enugu state. Four (4) research questions were
raised.  Data were collected using
questionnaire which were
distributed randomly among selected students and lecturers from a government
owned college of education and a private owned college of education in Enugu
state. The data collected were analyzed using mean and a criterion mean of 2.5
was adopted and item whose mean value is less than this value were unaccepted
and that within and beyond this value were accepted. The
findings indicated that the factors responsible for low enrolment in science
education in colleges of education in Enugu State are parental influence, peer
group influence, Poor background knowledge of science at the secondary level
and students’ attitude towards science education. It was recommended that parents
and guardians should not enforce courses on their wards. Students should
understand that science is not a no man’s land as it is applied in our everyday
life; school guidance and counselor should be made to organize regular career
guidance to students, teachers salaries should be paid regularly; Parent and
guardians should monitor their little ones interest and ability before
enrolling into institution of higher learning; only qualified teachers should
be employed to teach science subjects in secondary school where the foundation
of science is laid; science  laboratories
should be well equipped; science education inspector from both state and
federal government should pay regular visits to the schools as this will help
both the teachers and their students to work harder.
