Drug and substance abuse is a fast growing problem causing concern to
everybody in the education sector because of its negative impact on school
It is out of this concern that this research is being conducted to find out the effect
of the drug and substance use on secondary students. Research finding will also
establish the most prevalent drugs abused in the selected school that will be
generalized to form a view of what happens in other schools.
The results will be generalized to give a broader perspective of what happens in
schools and will provide a baseline data to the school administration in coming
up with remedial measures aimed at impeding the progress of this seemingly
ever unending problem among the youth.
The study will use systematic random and purposive sampling technique.
Students from the day school have a wider interaction with outside environment
hence learn from it. Boarding school present a unique sample because truant
behaviour and drug abuse are very common phenomenon yet these girls and
boys do not have a lot of interaction with the outsiders. The major concern is
how do and where do they get drugs and substances that they use?
The study population will comprise 79 students selected from form 1 to form 4 in
each school, two teachers will be sampled; a guidance and counseling teacher
purposively sampled and any other teacher randomly selected from each school.
The researcher will use questionnaires to collect data from students and teachers.
A questionnaire will be a suitable data collection instrument because each
respondent will complete it himself/herself. It is possible to assure oneself that
each respondent answered exactly the same questions and that the results are
strictly comparable from one respondent to another.
Data will be analysed using both inferential and descriptive statistics. Data will be summarized in graphs, proportions and frequency tables.
