IMPACT OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE ON THE ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE OF SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS IN OWO LOCAL GOVERNMENT, NIGERIA
This study aimed at ascertaining the impact of domestic violence on a child academic performance in Owo Local Government Area. It employed the use of structured questionnaire to collect information from students from five selected secondary schools in Owo Local Government, Ondo State, Nigeria. The target population comprised of 510 students from both public and private secondary schools in the area. Descriptive statistics such as simple percentage and tables were used to summarize the data. Analysis of variance was used at 0.05% level of significance to test the hypotheses. The study revealed prevalence of all forms of domestic violence such as physical, economic, emotional and psychological in most of the homes investigated in this study. The study shows that child academic performance differed significantly among the students F (4,450) =12.664, P<0.05. This indicates that domestic violence significantly affects child academic performance. The study recommends that domestic violence awareness campaigns should be put in place to educate the public on the dangers of violence. Efforts should be made right from kindergarten, primary school and colleges to inculcate more responsible behaviour at a tender age, and to teach and educate young people that violence is never acceptable behaviour.
