ABSTRACT

The pride of educational system depends not just on the quantity but more importantly, on the quality of its products at all levels. The quality of the products in turn depends largely on the quality of the education that students receive in Secondary Schools and which is also dependent upon the standard of control that teachers and students enjoy. It has been observed that,the problem of inadequate and ineffective quality control has been responsible for producing students who remain half-baked and cannot assist the society in which they find themselves. This study looks at the causes and effects of fallen standard of education among secondary school students in Gwagwalada Area Council. The participants were one hundred (100) respondents. The resultscshow that the standard of education has fallen to a great drastic extent in Gwagwalade Area Council of FCT, lack of finance of education sector by government is responsible for the fallen standard of education and traditional values, in terms of poor or wrong orientations are responsible for the decline in standard. Based on the finding it was recommended that government should increase the allocation of subventions to the educational sectors. Also, the community should assist in the financing of schools in their environs because it will help to a great extent the employment and the payment of well-qualified teachers who are catalyst of educational excellence. To properly address the fallen  standard of education, students in secondary schools should learn to imbibe the habit of reading and being punctual to school as well as abiding by the regulatory standard of the schools, this is because findings from the in-depth interview reveals that students come to school at will and leave at will. This will help to greater measure in the reduction of the fallen standard of education among secondary school students in Gwagwalada Area Council.
