Academic achievement of high school students in relation to physical climate of the schools
M. Mary Manjula Rose, G. Porgio
Education in the broadest sense is any act or experience that has a formative effect on the mind, character or physical ability of an individual. No one has yet realized the wealth of sympathy, the kindness and generosity hidden in the soul of a child. The effort of every true education should be to unlock that treasure. The concept of achievement involves the interaction of the factors namely aptitude for learning, readiness for learning, and opportunity for learning. It is the accomplishment or acquired proficiency in the performance of an individual in a given skill or body of knowledge. It is the criterion for selection, promotion or recognition in various walks of life. The central job of high schools is to maximize the capacity of each student. If the school climate is not positive, students will underperform, student attendance and student discipline are not likely to improve and school safety coned be compromised. If the school climate is not positive, students will underperform, student attendance and student discipline are not likely to improve and school safety coned be compromised. The physical environment should be welcoming and conducive to learning. In the present study the investigators have adopted stratified random sampling method for data collection. The sample for the present study consists of 1000 high school students from 27 schools of Kanyakumari, Tirunelveli, and Tuticorin districts. The tools constructed by the researchers were teacher effectiveness scale and academic achievement scale. For data analysis statistical techniques such as Percentage analysis, Mean, Standard Deviation and‘t’ test were employed. The physical climate of the self- financed high schools is greater than the government and aided high school students. Government and the Management may set up a part of reasoned sum of money for improving the physical climate of their schools. Government may come forward to provide additional grants to improve the physical climate of the schools such as classroom, furniture and equipment.
