PROJECT TOPIC- FACTORS AFFECTING STUDENTS’ PERFORMANCE IN IGBO LANGUAGE SENIOR SECONDARY SCHOOL CERTIFICATE EXAMINATIONS

 

Abstract

The Igbo language is among the three major Nigerian languages to be studied in schools in Nigeria, the others are Hausa and Yoruba languages. This implies that Igbo language occupies a very important linguistic position in Nigeria, hence the federal government approval of it. Unfortunately, Igbo language students have been performing poorly in the senior secondary school certificate examinations. This ugly situation has continued to be of great
concern to those crusading for Igbo language growth. This study therefore, investigated the factors affecting students’ performance in Igbo language in
the senior secondary school certificate examinations. Two research questions were, raised for the study. Data were collected using a set of structured
questionnaire which was distributed to 200 respondents which comprised only the Igbo language students. It was discovered that there are insufficient
number of teachers to teach the Igbo language. Also the attitude of students, parents, teachers and the larger society constitute some factors affecting
students performance in Igbo language in senior secondary school examinations. In the light of the findings, recommendations were made.
These include: That the number of qualified teachers who teach Igbo language should be increased and that the government should create more job opportunities for graduates of Igbo language.

Introduction

The importance of language to man need not to be overemphasized. Language is one of man’s most remarkable attributes. It is an absolute precondition for nearly al our social life, and it is the medium in which most organized thought and communication proceed.
Highlighting the importance of language to man, Adetugbo (1980:2) states that “all human societies, and institutions are made possible only by man’s possession of language”.Odusina (1989:17) in his view observes that “without language, there would be mental isolation and thought stagnation in interaction either”. Closely related to this, Obanya (1981:3) said that language is seen as “man’s most important gift, the vehicle for communication
and a good instrument for thought and creativity”. For Pickering and Hoeper (1990:87) language is, “the means by which the writer controls and influences the reader”. Language is so important in teaching and learning process such that the Nigerian government appreciates it as a means for
promoting social interaction and national cohesion (FRN, 2004). Igbo as a language is very important especially the cultural aspect. This is because, it is the basis or the foundation of Igbo people. With Igbo language, social, moral, religious and economic values and norms of the Igbo people are inculcated. For instance, values such as respect for elders, hospitality, dressing, beliefs, being hard working are appreciated through the major genres of oral and written literature as works of art and as vehicles of culture and history of the people (Onwuka and Uloh- Bethels, 2010).
In the history of Igbo, a lot of people have made efforts to see that the language does not extinct.
Starting from the time of Dr S.EOnwu and his committee, whose effort led to the present orthography in see now. Also, scholars like, Ogbalu, Ugonna, Emenanjo, Nwadike and others, have been promoting Igbo language. For instance, in an attempt to see that Igbo language stays, Ogbalu single handedly
introduced the society for the promotion of Igbo language and culture (SPILC) whose among the objectives according to Nwadike (2002) is to demonstrate the capability of Igbo language to serve as a language of communication and transaction at all levels of governmental, educational and
commercial concern. However, inspite of these efforts made by these Igbo scholars one wonders why most native speakers of Igbo language do not embraced Igbo language. The attitude is noticeable in many schools especially secondary schools. Supporting this, Maduabum (2010) noted that the most successful terrain in ensuring that the Igbo language disappears from the face of the earth is our schools.
According to him, from the nursery to the university level, you are sometimes regarded as being savage if you speak Igbo. Infact, you will be tagged “Jewman” which nobody can explain what it means. In our secondary schools, especially the private schools, you are not only punished but also mocked for
