A COMPARATIVE ASSESSMENT ON THE AVAILABILITY OF READERS IN PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SECONDARY SCHOOLS

ABSTRACT

This research work investigated the availability of readers in some selected secondary schools which involved both private and public secondary schools Ekiti State, particularly Ikere-Ekiti Local Government Area of Nigeria as a case study. Readers or textbook remains one of the major teaching/learning resources used in schools. This research work therefore examined how the availability of textbooks enhanced the educational activities of students in both public and private schools, how it affected the performances of the students, the qualification and experience of the teachers, the unethical practices of teachers who usually use the readers or textbooks to remain lazy and idle and other acts which are detrimental to achieving educational goals which have done more harm than good to the nation’s educational system. This project stressed the need to make English language lesson easy and enjoyable through the use of instructional aid/improvisation. The poor performance in English language in most public and private secondary schools are due to the fact that its teaching is textbook dominated. The teachers do not have regular supply of teaching aids and where they are available they are so inadequate and obsolete The cost of purchasing these visual aids is quite enormous. It therefore becomes necessary for teachers and facilitators to improvise aids so as to bridge the gap between learners real world and the abstract foreign English world. This study is very significant because, it would be of immense benefit to the students, teachers, government, curriculum planners, educational administrators and the policy makers It was found that the government had vital roles in the provision of textbooks in the country at large and in secondary schools. It was also observed that there could be better materials such as technological tools, audio and video recordings, newspapers and journals other than the textbooks in places where there are no readers. The research was carried out through the descriptive research design. A sample of 300 students and 20 teachers which include 5 public and 5 private secondary schools where the students were randomly selected for the study and the research instrument which was the questionnaire and the close option type with the simple descriptive percentage method. The result showed that the availability of readers have great effect on the performance of students in both public and private secondary schools in their learning of English language and the teacher’s teaching methodology and how the population size of the students affect the availability of readers to the students in both public and private secondary schools. The study therefore recommended among other things that the school, the government, parents should encourage reading culture, provision of adequate textbooks for the students in both public and private secondary schools; well equipped and structured library should be put in place for the students and they should try as much as possible to equip the students with technological knowledge and make use of other teaching aid apart from their recommended texts.
