ABSTRACT

The study examines the effect effects of literacy of parents and pupils academic performance. The data was obtained through the use of questionnaires. The target population of the study includes parents, teachers and pupils of 20 randomly selected public and private elementary schools in Ilorin West Local Government Area. The sum of 100 copies of questionnaires was administered while 89 copies were returned and analyzed. The T-test and ANOVA was employed for the purpose of the data analysis. The result reveals that parent literacy has a significant effect (at 5% level of significance) on pupil’s academic performance. The study recommends that irrespective of gender representation, parents are endeavour to pay closer attention to the pupil’s academic performance; to enhance the pupil’s academic performance, parents are required to be have some literacy; parents are to maintain a good home as being a single parent has proven ineffective on pupil’s academic performance.  .
