PROJECT TOPIC- EFFECT OF TEACHERS QUALIFICATION ON STUDENTS PERFORMANCE IN ENGLISH LANGUAGE EXAMINATION IN ISHIELU LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREA OF EBONYI STATE

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

Background of Study

It is worthy to note that, the performance of candidates in English Language in Ebonyi State has consistently titled downwards. Examiners found out that every year, candidates’ script contains a great deal of incorrect answers which the candidates assumes to be correct parents also complain of their wards’ inability to gain admission into higher institutions due to poor result in qualifying tests in English Language.

Hence, the consensus of opinion among the public and in fact, the examiners according to WAEC chief examiners’ report (1993:5) is that the subject is taught by incompetent and unqualifiedly teacher. In the country generally, there is a pubic out-cry of the fallen standard of the Education as the number of students who fail and those that get poor results in WEAC/NECO examination increase every year.

Invariably, the public uses the English Language as an instrument to measure the standard of Education, because of the importance of this subject in the country in particular and its population world over. Bamgbose (1971) states “…of all heritage left behind in Nigeria by the British at the end of the colonial administration, probably, none is more important than the English Language”.

Holding to this, when English Language is not properly taught in Nigeria it has a negative effect on the performance of students. Worst hit by this ugly development are schools in rural areas like C.S.S Iyonu and C.S.S Azuinyaba etc. in which case, even where they exist some teachers, they lack the competence to operate in different aspects of the Language.

During the national conference on mass failure in public examination held in Ibadan in 1986, one of the speakers at the conference Omolewa said that the subject area committee has investigated considerate time, skills and energy in identifying areas of attention in the educational industry. He went further to lament on the fallen standard of education which is due to poor quality of teaching and learning in schools,

the huge student teacher ratio and large classes, the frustrating little and late payment of teachers. The anomalies about in different parents who are more interested in chasing contracts than in seeing to the educational foundation of their children, the existence of inexperienced and committed teachers, absence of suitable libraries, laboratory equipments and so on. Omolawa (1986).

The question now is: What is the relationship between teachers’ qualification and the student’s performance in the school certificate English Language examination through seminars and workshops organised purposely to train teachers.
