Abstract

This study examined the Situation of School Plant Facilities and Influence on Secondary School Students’ Academic Performance in Delta State. Four research questions guided the study. The study adopted a descriptive survey research design. The study population comprised 15,531 teachers in secondary schools within 471 public secondary schools in Delta State. The sample for this study consisted of 777 teachers in 236 public secondary schools within 13 Local Government Areas (LGAs) of Delta State selected using the multi-stage sampling technique of the stratified random sampling technique and proportionate random sampling technique. The instrument for data collection was a self-structured questionnaire by the researcher, containing 41items and titled: Situation and Influence of School Plant Facilities on Secondary School Students’ Academic Performance Questionnaire (SISPFSSSAPQ). The questionnaire was validated by two experts from Educational Foundations Department (Educational Management expert) and one Measurement and Evaluation expert, from Federal College of Education (Technical) Asaba, Delta State. Reliability of the instrument was established through a pilot-test. Data were analyzed using mean and standard deviation statistics. Findings of the study revealed among others that the situation of all the school plant facilities which included: the electronic school plant facilities, instructional school plant facilities, and infrastructural school plant facilities were all in a bad state in order to influence students’ academic performance. The bad situation of all the various school plant facilities had low influence on students’ academic performance. Based on these findings, recommendations were made and among them included that the Delta State government through the assistance of Post Primary Education Board (PPEB) should provide sufficient funds by conducting effective needs assessment which will ensure adequate mobilization of electronic school plant facilities in order to improve the situation of electronic facilities for secondary school students’ high academic performance.
