ABSTRACT

The purpose of study was to determine the factors leading to poor

performance in Science amongst primary school students of Kakuzi ZOflC

Thika district central province.

The specific objectives of the study were to investigate the relationship

between social economic background and poor performances in sciences

amongst students in Kenya, to investigate the relationship between

attitudes and poor performances in sciences amongst students in Kenya,

to investigate the relationship between learning resources and poor

performances in sciences amongst students in Kenya and to investigate

the relationship between infrastructure and poor performances in

sciences amongst students in Kenya

The methods used for data collection were questionnaires to the students

and interviews with teachers and ministry officials

The study revealed that socio economic background, the attitudes

of teachers, learning resources and poor infrastructure of a school

contributed to poor performance in science.

Teachers should be encouraged to train for science subjects to fill the

gap of limited teachers. Scholarships can be provided so that those who

cannot afford training services benefit.

Communities should be encouraged to start income generating activities

which would provide more disposable income to families and enable

them to acquire essential goods and services, including education

The government and other relevant organizations and institutions should

provide academic scholarships and bursaries aimed at keeping children

from disadvantaged families in school especially those who perform well

in school. Scholarships and bursaries aimed at encouraging students to

study science subjects and careers should also be established
