Reason why student always perform very poor in Examination

. ,

Educationists, Prof. Mopelola Omoegun, and Dr. Delight
Olise, have accused parents of abandoning their parental
roles.
The development, according to the academics, has resulted
in the increasing rate of examination malpractice and poor
performance in schools among their children.
Both spoke while addressing parents at this year’s “Covenant
Child Mothers’ Day” organised by Covenant Child Academy,
Ijesha, Lagos.
Omoegun, a former Dean of the Faculty of Education at the
University of Lagos, said that many parents refused to teach
their children morals that would make them to be successful
people in life.
She explained that instead of devoting their time to cater for
their children, parents prefer to go in search of material
things.
She said, “Mothers cannot give what they don’t have. Many
of our parents do not have morals themselves. The society
nowadays worships money and places it above honesty and
hard work. The lack of home values in society is contributing
to the increase in exam malpractice in schools. Even parents
are aiding their children in the vice.
“People are frustrating and puncturing the government’s
efforts aimed at revamping the sector. Mothers should go
back to the basics and serve as good role models for their
children.”
Olise, who is the Project Director of the academy, advised
mothers to always seek advice from professionals in order
to take informed decisions for their children.
Stressing the importance of guidance and counselling in
schools, she urged parents not to impose careers on the
children.
She added, “Parents need to get more educated. We are no
longer in an era where parents choose careers for their
children. Often times, we have seen situations where
children perform badly in tertiary institutions because their
parents imposed courses on them.
“Children should be allowed to choose and study courses
that they prefer, so that they can perform well. Every school
should have guidance and counselling unit to guide both
parents and their children.”
