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.
