CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
1.1           
Background to the Study
The knowledge of Economics is very
important in all aspect of human life. 
This has been emphasized in the Nigeria school curriculum.  This is also evident in the National Policy
on Education, Federal Ministry of Education (FME) 1981, that Economics is among
the important subjects in Nigeria
education system.  The study of Economics
will bring about self reliance and Economics development of any nation.  Emphasis is being laid on Economics because
of its key role in the study of human behaviours and the study of the economy
of the world.
Apparently, no nation can develop
economically without emphasis on the study of Economics as a course in the
secondary and tertiary institutions.
For a nation to develop, it must
understand the importance of study economics. 
Economics is one of the important subjects which form a bedrock of
secondary school curriculum.  In
secondary school today economics is among the important subjects in West
African school certificate examination. 
Although their performance after the examination is not encouraging.
Environment according to Horby (1993)
means “surroundings, circumstances influence”. 
He also defined impact as the force of an idea or invention or system?
Therefore environmental factors
according to Owolabi (1999) means, the home, school, teachers methodology.  Home background such as the socio – economic
status of the family will dictate to a large extent how well to the students
perform to a academics.  This is to say
that enriched environment will foster learning while impoverished environment
will impede learning.
1.2           
Statement of Problem
The problem under study is linked
with the unsatisfactory state of affairs in the Nigeria educational system.  The establishment of special schools,
government schools and community schools has resulted in the provision of
(Economics) facilities than others.
The environment varies from schools
to school.  It has not been very possible
to reconcile school educational facilities to school environments.  In addition, it is not certain whether the
government has adequate information on the actual relationship between teachers
attitude and students academic performance in Economics which forms the need
for this study.
1.3           
Purpose of the Study
This is designed to investigate the relationship
between teachers attitude and students academic performance in Economics in

textbook, good administrative management as well as location influences
students performance.

Significance of the Study

up immense advantage or school and society as it will help the university
curriculum designers to become award of the strengths and weakness in their

restructure or modify the university curriculum in order to suit the every
growing needs of the society.
Make secondary school teachers become
aware of the need to relate classroom learning to their environment and day to
day living and also of the importance of field trip to understanding situation
and thereby make some suggestion on the need of Economics facilities in
schools.  Make the students aware of the
relation schools.  Make the students
aware of the relationship between teachers attitude and students academic
performance in Economics in secondary school certificate examinations to be
able to make necessary adjustment on their study habit.
1.5
