ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between beading facilities

and students academic performance in selected secondary schools in KyerUojo district

It employed a cross-sectional survey design to evaluate the extent to which lack of

boarding facilities retards students' performance in examinations. Five out of the fourteen

schools were selected for the study using systematic list sampling. The study ~rther

considered senior four classes in all the selected schools and a sample of26 teachers took

part in the study selected using simple random sampling. Finding of the study revealed

that there is a significant difference in performance of day and boarding students in the

district and those schools with enough boarding facilities perform better than those with

out enough facilities. The study concluded that Students' academic performance in

boarding sections is better than in day sections. There is a significant difference between

the academic performance of boarders and that of day students. There is a relationship

between boarding facilities and students' academic performance. Lack of boarding

facilities in most schools is to a great extent responsible for poor students' performance in

examinations. The study recommended that the ministry of education and sports through

the education service commission (esc) should undertake staffing by recruiting enough

teachers, especially graduate teachers in to schools. The government of Uganda through

planning unit of the ministry of education and sports should provide special development

grant to secondary schools, especially in the rural, for the construction of libraries, laboratories, furniture and others. The structures should be stocked with textbooks, chemicals and equipments. The head teachers, school inspectors and teachers should be more analytical and supportive while examining problems of and dealing with children in day and boarding schools.
