- 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 …”
