- BACKGROUND OF STUDY
Inattention in the classroom can have a profound effect on academic progress if it continues for a prolonged period. Several causes range from various disorders, stressors in the child’s home or school environment, or not getting enough sleep at night. Of utmost importance is to avoid jumping to conclusions and to find the root of the problem for the child involved. From there, work on helping the student solve or improve his inattention in the classroom.
The critical tool used in the transformation of individual in particular and the society in general. Secondary education in Nigeria is meant at preparing the learners for valuable living conditions within the society and training for further education. In order to live a valuable life within any given community and contribute towards the social, economic, and political development of the nation, the appropriate skills, values, attitudes, knowledge, and competencies must be impacted into the individual. Stakeholders have experienced magnificent increase in students’ inattentiveness in secondary schools in Nigeria. In developing nations, indiscipline has been a major and continuous administrative problem among secondary schools in developing countries. Denga (1999) in his study identified indiscipline problems such as stealing, truancy, sexual offence, vandalism and cheating as destructive practices.
The percentage of students who drop out of school in most urban and rural areas of Nigeria, is on an increase. These students cultivate and demonstrate deviant behaviours and may never fulfill their potentials. They become burdens to the society. There is an outcry of Nigeria educators, administrators and parents about the increasing rate of indiscipline in Nigeria secondary schools. This observation unsettles the mind of patriotic Nigerians since children are considered the future leaders of the country. As a result, any attempt to curb students’ inattentiveness in school would be highly welcomed by the government, educators, parents, teachers and school administrators. The principal push of this study is to examine students’ indiscipline in secondary schools in Nigeria and discover the frequent and familiar types, the causes and suggest possible solutions to curb this deviant behaviour.
