The Influence of Environmental and Personal Factors on Kwara State Secondary School Students' Educational Outcome

O.E. Abdullahi    

Abstract: This study is concerned with the influence of environmental and personal factor on Kwara State secondary school students educational outcome. Using the responses from a sample of 750 students in randomly selected junior secondary school from each of the delimited urban; semi-urban and rural areas of the state with the results of their terminal examination, the results showed that there were significant differences (p≤0.05) among the three sets of students. The urban secondary students out-performed the semi-urban and the rural secondary students in their educational outcome. The researcher, therefore suggested that rather than uniformity, the educational goal should be diversified educational opportunities with maximum individual opportunity for finding the right niche and the reality of the individual differences and differences in cultural environment need not and should not mean reward for some and frustration for others.
