Title:Major school offences in Nigeria: follow-up study
Author:Nwana, O.C.
Periodical:Ikenga: Journal of African Studies
Geographic term:Nigeria
Subjects:juvenile delinquency
Abstract:In 1966 the author studied the incidence and intensity of major school offences committed by secondary school pupils in Western Nigeria. The results of this investigation were published in the West Afr. J. Educ., 15(1971), 2, p. 99/103. Five years have passed since the 1966 study and in the intervening period a lot of changes have taken place in the educational, social, political and economic life of Nigerians. It was thought that it would be of interest to both educationists and parents to know how far the pattern of school offences has been affected by the intervening period of five years. This is the motivation behind carrying out this follow-up study in the Western State of Nigeria (geographically more than 70% of what in 1966 used to be the Western Region of Nigeria). The results of the follow-up study are presented here. Ref., tab.
