Dr. Rebecca M AlcuizarAbstract:
The purpose of this research work is to determine the significant factors that affect the low academic performance among pupils in upland barangays. The paper reviewed the focal literature focusing on the effect of the determinants of nutrition, family’s living condition, parents’ support to their children, and school related. These factors built an analytical model of determinants of pupils’ low performance in their academics with a mind of gaining useful insights into the weight of these determinants. From the findings of this study, the determinants of nutrition, and living condition are the most related factors investigated that have significant effects on the low academic performance among the pupils of Rogongon, Iligan City, Philippines. Education in rural areas and upland barangays in the city has not given priority by the parents considering on their poor living condition and distance of the school from their home. Moreover, schools in rural areas have less support from local government for their instructional materials and training of teachers. Hence, the academic performance of the pupils in the area is poor as well as their National Achievement Test or NAT. Based on the findings of this paper, measures that can be taken by the school and local government are discussed and appropriate recommendations were made.Pages: 321-325 | 1413 Views 35 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
