Impacts Of Strikes On Student’s Academic Performance In Bukwo District A Case Study Of Selected Schools In Bukwo Sub-County

ABSTRACT

This study focused on the impacts of strikes on academic performance of

students in some selected secondary schools in Bukwo District. The objectives

of the study focused on the causes of strikes, relationship between strikes and

academic performance of students and ways to curb strikes and improve

academic performance of students in the selected secondary schools. A case

study design was used and 70 respondents were sampled through simple

random sampling and purposive sampling methods. Interview, and

questionnaire were the instruments used and both primary and secondary

sources of literature review formed part of this research. This study focused on

how strikes were caused by different factors right from family background,

school, ‘and external’ influences. Direct relationship between strikes and

academic performance of students was observed in that if there were strikes in

school students’ performance were likely to be low and the reverse is true.

Appropriate strategies were suggested to curb the phenomenon of strikes and

improve academic performance in the selected secondary schools. Some of

these included building disciplinary committees, listening and addressing

student’s problems, coordinating with parents, teachers and forming student’s

forum among others. The researcher recommended on the student’s deviant

behaviors that tend to lead to strikes and was to be controlled at all costs if better academic performance is to be achieved.
