CHAPTER FIVE: Discussion, Conclusion and Recommendation
The study investigated the influence of family type and sizes on secondary school academic performance in Olorunda, Osun State. However both public and private were the targeted population study. The instrumentation used which was performance data on students’ academic performance was obtained from their scores in two selected subjects of English and Mathematics. Data obtained was analysed using cross tabulation, tables, percentages. T-test was used to test the hypothesis and the result showed that there is no significant difference in the academic performance of students from small parent families and those from large parent families.
The study therefore revealed that family structure did not determine students’ academic performance, but parental socioeconomic background. Because irrespective of the family structure, students whose parents have better jobs and higher levels of income tends of have higher levels of literacy performance. From the research, it was revealed that education begins at an early period when the foundation of future life is laid. Education is an all round development of a person physically, intellectually and morally. Education is a process in which the societies through schools, colleges and university and other institutions deliberately transmit its cultural heritage and skills from one generation to the other. Education is power. The study therefore revealed that family structure did not determined student academic performance, but parental socioeconomic background. In order to improve students’ academic performance and reaction to life situations irrespective of their family structure, government and counselors were advised to provide the necessary psychological support for students from different family structure so as to overcome their emotional problems and improve academic performance.
