The knowledge of English is of great practical aspect in the scientific and
technological fields. English is widely recognized as an important qualification for
employment and further studies. It provides a unique type of experience in
problem solving which is an essential component of a complete education.
Though English is important, many pupils in schools continue to perform poorly in
the subject especially in internal and end term examinations. This is also the
case in Soi Zone, Mogotio Division in Koibatek District. Schools put more
emphasis on the cognitive aspects of Learning the subject for passing
examinations and certifications while the effective aspects of Learning are not
examined are seen as being of little value.
The purpose of this study was to examine and analyze the factors contributing to
poor performance in English amongst learners in an inclusive classroom in Soi
Zone, Koibatek District. A sample of class five in five schools and their teachers,
headteachers and parents responded to questionnaire that measured pupils'
English poor performance. The questionnaire was validated and found to be
reliable. The results of the study showed that there are factors which contribute
to poor performances and include poor teaching methods, negative attitudes
amongst pupils and teachers, large class enrolment and inadequate teaching
and learning materials.
The findings of this study are expected to be useful to the English teachers,
pupils, teacher trainers and counselors in understanding and improving Learners'
English performances through timely interventions. They are also important as a basis for future research.
