BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY
In Nigeria educational system, less emphasis is paid to environment as a major factor that has absolute control on the educational attainment of the child. Environment plays a crucial role in the life of individual.
The level of education of the parent, occupation of parents, the attitude of people to education are some of the factors that affect the child at home which can make his progress in school, such as facilities / instructional aids, teacher-student’s relationship, remuneration for teacher to mention a few which are regarded as school environment contribute in no small measure to the academic performance of a child.
A child who is endowed with intellectual potential without exposure to comfortable and challenging environment, which can boost his natural endowment is band to perform poorly in his academics. The poor environment will affect him adversely. This argument is supported by wise man (2009) when he opined that high innate intelligence coupled with bad environment might produce poor educational attainment because of lack of parental backing encouragement, poor motivation and so on. However, if a child with lesser natural talent is brought up in a challenging and conducive environment, all other things being equal, he will perform well in his subjects in school.
Akinyemi (2008) declared that among the Local Government in Ekiti State, Ado Local Government is one of those whose performance in the junior secondary school Examination in Business studies has attracted public attention in terms of high rate of failure. He said that most of the teachers posted to the local government do not stay in their stations to deliver the goods to the student rather they engaged in businesses. This is rampant in schools in the rural areas of the local government where the effect of truancy on the part of the teachers is that, only a few of them can boast of covering half of the topics specified in the school syllabuses sent to schools by the examining body. But in the case of urban areas nothing like that.
Since the final examination is based on the syllabuses and not on the number of topics treated in the syllabuses, there is bound to be mass failure. This reason account for the mass failure in Business studies witnessed every year the high failure rate in Business studies at the junior secondary school certificate examination in the Local Government is alarming. The situation has caught the attention of the researcher and made the researcher to investigate the environment factors that influence in teaching and learning of Business studies in Junior secondary schools and the extent to which they are responsible for the performance of the students in the Junior secondary certificate examination.
