THE INFLUENCE OF HOME BACKGROUND ON SNDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS’ CAREER

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

THE STUDY’S

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 ents for their role as workers.

Interaction with the home shapes young people’s attitudes toward work and . The foundation for a ent’s 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’ status (SES), level of education, and biogenetic factors such as physical size, gender, ability, and temperament have all been linked to choice. In a y 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 ies. According to Montgomery (1992), ents gifted in mathematics saw their choice as a reflection of their early home influences and educational opportunities.

However, according to De Piddeo (1990), adolescents’ 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 choice. Another aspect of a ent’s home background that influences 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 ents’ self efficacy in terms of 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 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).

MENT OF THE PROBLEM

While we may blame governments, teachers, and children, the home from which ents come leaves much to be desired. When discussing a ent’s choice of secondary school , it is important to note that we cannot exonerate the child’s home. Parents’ status, educational level, love for Jesus, family size, and temperament have all been found to influence ents’ choices.

RESEARCH QUESTION

The following questions were asked to address the impact of family background on secondary school ents’ choices:

1. To what extent does the status of parents influence ents’ secondary school choices?

2. Is there a link between parents’ educational levels and secondary school ents’ choices?

3. Does the size of a home influence secondary school ents’ choices?

4. Is there a link between ents’ living conditions at home and their choices?

5. To what extent do parents’ ability and temperament influence their children’s 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 ents’ secondary school choices are influenced by their parents’ status, educational level, family size, and parental ability. As a result, the goal of this y is to look into the impact of ents’ home backgrounds on their 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 choices.

Based on the foregoing, the ents will assist parents in gaining insight into their children’s behavior and needs. The y aims to identify the factors that impede or improve ent selection in secondary schools.

OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY

This research is limited to secondary schools in Edo State’s Central local government area. In recognition of the similar situation that most ents in other secondary schools in Edo State face, the survey will concentrate on ents in their first and final years of y.
