CHAPTER FIVE: SUMMARY, CONCLUSION AND RECOMMENDATION
The study investigate the influence of classroom management and control on the academic performance in selected junior secondary schools in Ikere local government area of Ekiti state. The study is a descriptive research design and the population of the study comprises students and teachers in five randomly selected schools in Ikere Local Government Area of Ekiti State. A total of (100) students were finally selected as respondents to the questionnaire used together for the data study. The questionnaire was design by the researchers in consultation with the supervisor of the project. The distribution of the instrument (i.e. questionnaire are to the respondents was carried out by the researcher. The analysis of the data was collected and was presented and analyzed.

The result also shows that Proper classroom management influence students’ performance. The study recommended that School should be cited in a conducive environment which is free from industrial machine noise or that of the ongoing vehicles. More furniture should be provided in the schools to avoid student from sitting on the bare floor.
Background to the study
Teaching is one of the most difficult jobs of all because you have to consider, while teaching, issues such as students‟ backgrounds, interests, most suitable teaching methods. However, first of all, the teachers should provide best learning environment such as a warm, cooperative, relaxed atmosphere and suitable materials for the students so that they can easily acquire the topic. Dodge, Rudick and Colker (2009) comment that “learning environment, the use and organization of the space in the classroom, the daily schedule and routines, and the social and emotional atmosphere, meets students’ developmental needs. It makes all students feel safe and comfortable and that they belong. As a result, they are helped to become independent and confident learners.”
Classroom management and control is a cardinal feature of the total education process. It contains all the steps through which interaction between the educator and the educate take place. Classroom management is the process of ensuring that classroom lessons run smoothly despite of disruptive behavior by students. The term also refers to the prevention of disruptive behavior of students (Zuhair 2013).
Classroom management refers to all those essential activities which are highly necessary not only to create but also to maintain a supportive and orderly atmosphere. It includes planning and preparation of teaching and learning materials, organization of the materials, decoration of the classroom, creation of expectation and establishment and enforcement of rules and routines in the classroom (Tan, Parsons, Hinson and Sardo-Brown, 2003).
It can be rightly argued that the teacher is the biggest influence on how well students behave in a classroom. This means that it is not the quality of the students, the involvement of the parents, or the administration that make the most impact, but the teacher’s attitude. This is premised on the fact that some students tend to live up to the teacher’s expectations. In this instance when the teacher expects great things from them, they would surely rise to the challenge. The corollary is that when you expect poor classroom behaviour they would also meet that challenge. It must be appreciated that effective classroom management is probably the most difficult aspect of a teacher’s duty and role. It is opined by Verstrate (2014) that, “it is not simply to teach curriculum content but it is to also guide, direct and empower students to govern their own behaviour so that their life within a social setting can be an enjoyable and productive one.”
The overall value of effective classroom management and its positive effect in guaranteeing the achievement of outstanding educational outcomes is well captured by Emmer and Stough (2001). They argued that the ability of teachers to organize classrooms and manage the behaviour of their students is critical to achieving positive educational outcomes. Although sound behaviour management does not guarantee effective instruction, it establishes the environmental context that makes good instruction possible. Reciprocally, highly effective instruction reduces but does not eliminate classroom behavioural problems.
According to Verstrate (2011), the classroom procedures can be used to provide “consistent momentum or transitions.” Some of them include entering / leaving the classroom. The procedure involves students coming in quietly, take out the needed materials for the class, and place their bags and other items neatly under their desks. In starting the class, the students should be quiet before the teacher walks in. The next procedure which is the taking of role can be accomplished quickly if you have assigned seats to each student and you have a seating chart
readily with you. This can be followed by checking home work. To make this effective, the students can be offered an “open notebook home work quiz”.
Statement of the problem
The role and significance of teacher in the teaching and learning and academic performance of learners at all level cannot be undermined just as the effectiveness of teachers in managing the classroom atmosphere teaching and learning resources are control of learner in the classroom are very paramount in the success of meaningful teaching and learning process and overall academic performance of students in junior secondary schools. In addition the learning environment as well as the personality and experience of teacher have a lot of role to play in ensuring a conducive and harmonious classroom situation necessary for effecting desired learning objective. However, how effective a teacher in terms of classroom management and control have a long lasting effect on the academic performance of students. A disorderly class will have the students not being attentive to lesson, students engaging in side talking noise, making students becoming nuisance, unserious and inattentive and the result of this is development of poor learning styles among learners. Poor listening, skills, poor understanding of subject being taught, poor mastery of method of teaching and this accumulate into poor academic performance of students. It is this trust that the researcher investigate the influence of classroom management and control on the academic performance in selected junior secondary school in Ikere Local government Area of Ekiti State.
