Identifiable Corrupt Practices Among Staff and Students of Secondary Schools in Delta State of Nigeria

Daniel Duwovwiji Whawo

Abstract

This survey research was conducted to ascertain if there are any identifiable corrupt practices in secondary schools in Delta State of Nigeria. It also sought to catalogue the evils which corruption has done to Secondary Education in the country.
Staff and students of secondary schools were randomly selected as respondents to a validated research open-ended questionnaire designed for the investigation. Results of data analyses revealed that there are several corrupt practices in secondary schools, the most frightening one being examination malpractice. They also agreed that several evils have been introduced into the school system by corruption. A lowering of academic standard occasioned by the reluctance of students to read has resulted in poor examination performance among students. These and other social evils being practised in the system by both staff and students are depreciating the quality of education at the secondary level. It is suggested that teachers be given proper orientation to dissuade them from perpetuating evils in the school system. Teachers and parents are to combine to build up good character in children.
