THE INFLUENCE OF HOME BACKGROUND ON secondary school students' CAREER choice
THE STUDY'S HISTORY
Parents serve as significant interpreters to children for information about the world and children's ability (Hall, Kelly, Hansen, and Vulwein, 1996) home influence is an important force in preparing students for their role as workers.
interaction with the home shapes young people's attitudes toward work and career. The foundation for a student's career planning and decision-making is his or her family background. However, the level of involvement within each home can be very positive or negative.
Parents' socioeconomic status (SES), level of education, and biogenetic factors such as physical size, gender, ability, and temperament have all been linked to career choice. In a study on adolescent vocational development, Panic and Jepson (1992) discovered that education had the greatest impact on education plans and occupational aspiration.
Mortime et al. (1992) also reported that parents with postsecondary education tend to instill its value in their children, a finding supported by other studies. According to Montgomery (1992), students gifted in mathematics saw their career choice as a reflection of their early home influences and educational opportunities.
However, according to De Piddeo (1990), adolescents' career choices can be hampered by their parents' lack of education. Being born to parents with limited education and income reduces the likelihood of attending college or achieving professional and occupational goals, and has essentially predetermined the child's likely career choice. Another aspect of a student's home background that influences career choice is income.
According to Mortimer et al. (1992), one reason for this may be that homes with limited economic resources may tend to direct children first to the older children in the home, providing less hope and encouragement to the younger children in the home. As a result, it is understandable that students' self efficacy in terms of career opportunities is linked to the economic support they can expect from their parents.
Parents who love Jesus and want the best for their children will encourage their children to pursue a career that will bring them joy in the future. Thus, Proverbs 22:6 admonished parents to pay attention to their children, while the children, in turn, should demonstrate obedience (Ephesians 6:13).
STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
While we may blame governments, teachers, and children, the home from which students come leaves much to be desired. When discussing a student's choice of secondary school career, it is important to note that we cannot exonerate the child's home. Parents' socioeconomic status, educational level, love for Jesus, family size, and temperament have all been found to influence students' career choices.
The following questions were asked to address the impact of family background on secondary school students' career choices:
1. To what extent does the socioeconomic status of parents influence students' secondary school career choices?
2. Is there a link between parents' educational levels and secondary school students' career choices?
3. Does the size of a home influence secondary school students' career choices?
4. Is there a link between students' living conditions at home and their career choices?
5. To what extent do parents' ability and temperament influence their children's career choices?
Home is the foundation of a child's socialization processes. A child begins to learn even before it is born from its mother's womb and as such as it is born into this world (2 Timothy 2:15) as God's creature, made in God's image, the child does not learn in a vacuum but rather is active by learning, in a society of humans who influence his guess such society embodies the home to which the family belongs and school source of western education
It has been observed that students' secondary school career choices are influenced by their parents' socioeconomic status, educational level, family size, and parental ability. As a result, the goal of this study is to look into the impact of students' home backgrounds on their career choices in secondary school.
IMPORTANCE OF THE STUDY
Students succeed in school when certain factors are in place or under control, such as ensuring that the child is fed well at home, gets enough rest, does his homework, has his homework checked by both his teachers and parents, has his school materials, receives adequate encouragement from his parents, and useful information is given to the child to guide future generations of career choices.
Based on the foregoing, the students will assist parents in gaining insight into their children's behavior and needs. The study aims to identify the factors that impede or improve student selection in secondary schools.
OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY
This research is limited to secondary schools in Edo State's Esan Central local government area. In recognition of the similar situation that most students in other secondary schools in Edo State face, the survey will concentrate on students in their first and final years of study.
