A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SCHOOLS STUDENTS PERFORMANCE IN SHORTHAND IN ENUGU METROPOLIS ( A CASE STUDY OF ENUGU SOUTH LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREA

ABSTRACT

 

          The purpose of this study is to draw a comparison of public and private schools students performance in shorthand in Enugu matroplist in Eight selected schools in Enugu Education zone, Enugu state, Nigeria,  the following schools were studied.

Public schools

Idaw river girls secondary school, Enugu

Army day secondary schools Enugu

Girls high school, awkunanaw Enugu

Union secondary school, Awkunanaw Enugu

Private schools

Immaculate commercial college Enugu

Niger school of commerce Enugu

Queens comprehensive school Enugu

Salvation vocational college Enugu

          The students of the two different schools were given a test on shorthand at it speed rate of 60 words per minute to determine their performances.  In addition, teachers at the subject in the selected schools were interviewed on the factors responsible for either better or poor performance of students in the subject.

          From the data collected, the researcher was able to assess the performance of both schools in the comparative study.  These were treated in details in chapter four, but some of them are; that constant practicing, dedication to studying the subject and having interest on the subject enhances performance, while poor performance emanate as a result of lack of interest, irregular attendance to class etc.

          Based in the data, it established that students in private schools are poor.  Among the recommendations preferred shorthand theory should in incorporated in the production work from the beginning to the end of students graduation and adequate facilities be provided in relative to lecturers.

INTRODUCTION

1.1            BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

The parameter or yardstick in the measurement or determine into of ones achievement, success or failure on an assigned duty, specific task, education and or, in a business endeavour is by the evaluation of his/her performance in their various subjects of study in Nigeria is a thing of long time origin.  And the appraisal of students performance in shorthand is not an exemption.  The importance of shorthand as a subject taught in secondary school in Nigeria cannot be over-emphasized.  This is because a secretarial arising trained without equipping him/her with the rudiments, basic principles and a well led down foundation of shorthand would be compared to a soldier without “shooting knowledge”.  It is in this vain that many researchers have studied our school system to identify the various means, channel and or, procedure of impeaching this knowledge to our students especially secretaries.
