CAUSES AND EFFECTS OF TRUANCY ON PRIMARY SCHOOL PUPILS ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE IN MATHEMATICS

CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
1.1   BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

        Mathematics is the science of number and space, it is the language of the new millennium (Harbor-Peter, 2000). It is the queen of science and technology, also a tool for scientific and technological development (Agwagah and Ezeugo, 2000). No National can develop scientifically and technological without proper foundation in school mathematics (Okafor, 2005 in Kurumeh and Imoko, 2006). In recent years, for instance, there had been criticisms in public places, and in news papers over the low standard of performance in mathematics in our schools’ prominent among the critics are the teachers and parents. The critics are particularly concerned with the teaching of basic mathematics in our schools. They claim that most students who have successfully completed secondary school education often failed mathematics. However, from the view point of national interest a far more serious consequences of the inability of the students to excel in mathematics successfully is in regard to scientific and technological advancement that we very much desire in the attainment of Millennium Development Goal.

          We need many qualified doctors, engineers, agricultural scientists, economists, computer programmers and mathematics teachers. All these professionals require basic courses in mathematics up to advanced level before they can specialize in these professions.

          According to Oxford advanced learning dictionary; truancy is an act or condition being absent without permission.

          Merriam (2012) says truancy as an act or instance of playing truant: the state of being truancy (the California legislature view truancy in very precise language). In summary it states that a student missing more than 30 minutes of instruction without an excuse three times during the school year must be classified as a truancy.

          Sherilyn (2011) view that three are various reason of truancy and this has been on of the major problems in Nigeria and it is negatively affecting the future of the pupils. Absence rates have reached as high as 30 percent in some schools and it is harder for the teachers to do something about this. And this affects not only the pupils but their families as well. Consequences are various as well if they miss to many classes they will not be able to congratulate on time and they will fall behind their classmates and this will affect not only their self-esteem but various other things. All this can improve if teachers together with parents make good plan to interest pupils who is skipping classes to get back to school.

          This can be done by talking and learning about pupils interests regarding the school.

          In town like Ago Ika, Lafenwa, Ita Oshin pupils are run away from school which bring researcher closer to the topic, to find out the effect of truancy.   

1.2   STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM         

          The high rate of truancy in town calls for attention. It could generate to pupils not performing very well academically. It could also lead to various forms of criminal, damage, robbery with violence and abusive conduct etc.

          This study would therefore investigate

i.        What truancy means.

ii.       The causes of truancy.

iii.      The effects of truancy on primary school pupils academic       performance in           mathematics.

iv.      The possible solution to the problem.

1.3   RESEARCH QUESTIONS

(i)           What is truancy?

(ii)          What are the causes of truancy?

(iii)        What are the effects of truancy on primary school pupils academic performance in      mathematics.

(iv)         How we can reduce truancy in primary school pupils?

1.4   PURPOSE OF THE STUDY

          The study superficially find out

(i)           To examine of truancy.

(ii)          To explain causes of truancy.

(iii)        To explain effects of truancy.

(iv)         To suggest possible solution to the problem of this study.

1.5   SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY

          The study would enable the various benefactor to have better understanding of what used to prompt our primary school pupils on truancy on school academic.

          The study will be of benefit to the government by given information on the high level of truancy in the schools and it consequence effect. Government in a bid to curb truancy will therefore be able to apply measures capable eradicating such acts. One of the measures could be disciplinary measure approved by the government e.g. Government backing schools in given out some punishment to student such acts. Government could also pass some law banding on school pupils and teachers to reduce truancy. Dedicated and intelligent in schools could be motivated through various incentives e.g. money, gift to make student who are truant change their attitude.

          The study would assist parent to pay more attention to the activities of the children in and outside schools for parent who pampered their children and do not give room for correction they would have a change of act to see the need for discipline on the children. 

          The study will help the teacher to assist the pupils as much as possible to develop interesting and the activity based on teaching method it will also make her lesson in class interesting to the pupils. And also make the use of availability of the instructional materials for the pupils to enhance an effective teaching and learning process.      

          The study will help the pupils to be more serious about his or her study. It will also use his free period to read more at home. It will also identify the brilliant pupils in his class and make friend with them so that they can teach him more or explain more of the unknown topic to him. The study will make the pupils pay more attention to education and work towards a great future.

The reason why many technicians earns more than some university graduates is because the technicians acquire more practical skills than the theories, unlike the graduates who were fed with theoretical experiences while in the universities. It can take you to places you do not expect you will find yourself. Skill acquisition is the ability to be trained on a particular task or function and become expert in it. It is really u
