CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
1.1           
BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY
It is a
common knowledge in this country to blame the poor academic performance of
students on the teachers.  The schools
seen to be held wholly responsible because it is place to impart academic
learning.  In other words, it is the
belief of the general public that the school or the teacher is the ‘alpha’ and
‘omega’ who could turn the children to academic genus.
While there has been a general
falling or depression in standard of education and the rate of which students
fail English Language at the Senior Secondary Schools in Nigeria, it has been
equally observed that there is a wide discrepancy in the academic achievement
and good grade in English Language of one student and another.  Despite the fact that the students were
taught by the same teacher in the same classroom and school environment, they
still performed differently.  This is
probably because of individual differences such as family background,
educational background of the parents, environment influences, genetic
background and financial problem against which ability develops.  Any or some of these factors can make or mar
academic performance of the children. 
Many studies have been carried out on students’ performances in English
Language when compared with other variables. 
Oladipo (1994) says that ‘the mass failure in English Language at the
certification Examinations may be due to the fact that the parents of most
students are either not educated at the or only have primary school education’
Without
mincing words, it is quite dear that home is the first encounter of child with
the outside world and it is the first social agent whose main objective is to
develop the totality of the child; in other words, home, apart from its social
role, should also develop the intellectual, physical and emotional aspect of
the child.
Therefore, it
is generally assumed that children from well – educated families are more
encouraged in learning that the children from homes where their parents are not
educated or are half – educated. 
According to Arogundade (1995) “… Those (children) from illiterate homes
can somewhat be backward because they do not see beyond their Moses and those
from literate homes are ridi in experience and better in outlook …”

STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
Based on all these, it is the
interest of the researcher to focus on the study of the relationship of the
parents’ educational background to their children’s achievement in the Senior

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY

not educated.
