ABSTRACT

The study investigated the causes of truancy among students as perceived by secondary school teachers in Ilorin Metropolis.

Two hundred randomly selected samples responded to the causes of Truancy Questionnaire (COTQ). Data collected were analysed using frequency counts, percentage, t-test and ANOVA Statistics.

The results indicated that truancy was viewed as undesirable behaviours that destroys students and education objectives on the comparison, there were no significant differences on the causes of truancy among students as perceived by male and female, less experienced and more experienced and teachers from polygamous and monogamous homes. But there was significant observation on the basis of higher and lower education.

In view of the above, it was recommended that guidance and counseling should be made functional in schools to help facilitate desirable behaviours of students.
