CHAPTER ONE
Introduction
Education
is man’s fundamental method of reform and progress. It can be regarded as the
toll with which society brings the transmission of its own culture. Reomer
(2002) refers to education as all those experiences of the individual through
with knowledge is acquired, the intellect enlightened or the will
strengthened”.
Unachuka
(2008) defined education as the process by which individuals are assisted
formally to develop their capacity for their own benefit and that of the
society. The first set of schools were usually situated under big trees with
students who were mainly normally conducted in the evening after their trading
activities with the merchants who acted as the tutors. These teachers are
called “Mallams”. It is obvious that the first type of school system didn’t
have and facilities apart from the state and foreign textbooks.
Furthermore,
with the arrival of western education the uses of facilities became in vogue.
Classrooms which came in small rooms now in form of schools which comprises of
administrative blocks, offices with such facilities as chairs, tables, chalk
and chalkboard. Textbooks were also provided to aid teaching, this ease the way
knowledge was formally imparted to the students to prove for old Stanions
system.
Walbery
and Thomas (2005) has shown that students have been noted to learn best when
they can effectively explore at school environment that is rich in materials so
that whenever they are given the responsibility to make meaningful choice, they
afford to interact with the available facilities.
This led to Adaralegbe’s (2008)
statement which states that the large scale of educational facilities had been
embarked upon because of increasing awareness if the state that education
pauses the way for modernization and enable one to improve oneself, putting
this into consideration in our schools presently it will be noted that,
education by various government bit yet, much efforts is still required to meet
up adequately. Since over fifty million peoples desire education presently.
Classrooms are very vital in schools. The classrooms are constructed to suit the
purpose of learning and also considering climate of the people.
Eagle
Hardt (2006) emphasized that classrooms referred to as “teaching laboratories”.
Much importance should be attached to facilities to enable am imagined
educational facilities to be achieved. This is short shows the importance of
the provision of efficient and effective facilities to help enhance a smooth
and conducive teaching and learning process to enable the production of
effective manpower for the nation.
Educational
facilities have been observed as potent factors to quantitative education. The importance
to teaching and learning of the provision of adequate educational facilities
for education cannot be over emphasized.
Akande
(2002), learning can occur through one’s interaction with one’s environment.
Environment here refers to facilities that are available to facilitate students
learning outcome. It includes books, audio visual, software and hardware of
educational technology, so also, size of classroom, sitting position and
arrangement, availability of tables, chairs, chalkboards, shelves on which
instruments for practical’s are arranged. (Farrant, 2001 and Farombi,2008).
Educational facilities refers to the school plant that is, the school
buildings, classrooms, library, toilet facilities, offices and other materials
and infrastructures that would likely motivate students towards learning.
Educational facilities are germane to effective learning and academic
performance of students.
In
support of this, Hallak (2008) identified facilities as the main factor
contributing to academic performance in the school system.
Ajayi
and Ogunyemi (2000) reiterated that when facilities  are provided to meet relative needs of a
school system, students will also learn at their own paces. The net effect of
this is increased overall academic performance of the entire students.
Fabunmi
(2007) asserted that educational facilities is provided will aid teaching
learning programme and consequently improve academic performance of students
while the models guiding their provision to schools could take any form as
whichever model is adopted, according to him, there is always a common feature
of differing in the allocation of facilities to schools.    
(Wilcockson
2004, Lawal 2005, Ajayi 2006, Suleiman 2006) have variously identified the
significance of facilities in teaching learning spheres we can say that absence
or  poor quality of educational
facilities can affect academic performance.
Statement Of The
Problem
Inadequate
facilities will surely affect the smooth teaching process in all schools. There
are some problems outlined below encountered in schools duo to lack of adequate
facilities, it is known that the academic performance of each students depends
to a large extent on the facilities exposed to while learning but, when  they are lacking some problems is faced.
The
first noted, peculiar problem would be generated when there is no inclusive
teaching and learning conduction the conduciveness could be as a result of
non-availability of facilities like tables and chairs in the classroom. There
can never be way of concentration by students. Students cannot be expected to
achieve any of the objectives at the end of the lesson.
Since
the interest of the students are very low, they are going to also have a low
level of understanding knowledge to be 
imparted to the students would not be fully understand. Classrooms are
lacking in many schools and in some schools were they can be found reagents and
equipment are lacking. For instance student in business class who always learn
in abstract, that is without practical knowledge of what teacher is saying
cannot have effective learning and this will automatically affect his or her
academic performance. It is observed that the student supply their acquired
knowledge in effectively since they have not be enable to be taught with
practical aspects but rather expressed to only theoretical aspects of their
field of specialization, if they have been opportune to make use of facilities
in different aspects they would have been effectively appropriate.
There
are some problems outlined below encountered in schools.
·       
Students ineffective
study techniques

The parents inability
to provide useful materials like textbook, notebook and school fees.

There are not enough
chairs and tables in the classroom, students cannot be expected to achieve any
of the objective at the end of the lesson.

·       
Investigate the impact
of educational facilities on academic performance of business studies students
in some selected secondary schools, like local government area of Ekiti State,
·       
To determine the impact
of educational facilities on the academic performance.
·       
To identify the impact
of educational facilities on academic

Significance Of The
Study
The
research work is expected to identify the impact of educational facilities on
the academic performance of business studies students in some selected Secondary
School in Ikere Local Government Area. This is significant because the
identification of causes and possible solutions to poor performance of students
in business studies will help to remove the perennial poor performance in the
learning of business studies on the parts of the students and draw attention of
the improvement of their method. This study is significant in the fact that it
could serve as a vital information aimed at showing the relationship that exist
between adequate performance of students.

project aims at the teaching facilities and how it affects the performance of
students in some selected secondary schools. To solve the problem of the study
