SEX OF TEACHERS AS CORRELATES TO STUDENTS’ PERFORMANCE IN BASIC TECHNOLOGY IN EDO STATE FOR NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT
The study examined sex of teachers as correlates of student’s performance in Basic Technology in Edo State for national development. The population for this study was two hundred and forty-nine (249) students chosen from 18 schools from 3 Local Government Areas of Edo State of Nigeria. Thirty-two (32) respondents were used for this study, and the data that was collected was analyzed. The calculated correlation value fell within the acceptance region. This result allowed for the retainment of the null hypothesis which states that there is no significant influence of teachers’ sex on academic performance of students in Basic Technology in Edo State. The researcher concluded that while the sex of the teachers is an important variable, it is not one that can influence students’ academic performance in Basic Technology in Edo State. It was recommended that the government should recruit Basic Technology teachers whether male or female, since gender has influence on the performance of students in Basic Technology in Edo state and that Basic Technology teachers whether male or female should be motived by ways of giving them scholarship for further studies.
