Abstract:Report of a study of students' perceptions of teacher classroom behaviour, carried out in 1988 among 200 students in coeducational institutions in Borno State, Nigeria. The following question guided the study: Do teachers in Borno State secondary schools manifest a differential treatment of boys as opposed to girls? The answers to a questionnaire showed that teachers do indeed treat boys and girls differently. An analysis of this result indicates that there was no statistically significant difference in the opinions of male and female students, nor in the opinions of urban and rural students with respect to teachers' classroom behaviour.
