Attitudes of Nigerian Students and Teachers towards the Teaching Profession

C-O Adaeze


This study investigated the attitude of students and student-teachers towards the teaching profession in Minna, Niger State. A fifteen item questionnaire and a structured interview schedule were used to collect data from a sample of 250 respondents who were randomly selected from public and private schools within the Minna metropolis. The data collected were analyzed using
frequency counts, percentages and means. The results revealed that  participants held positive attitude towards the teaching profession but at different levels of significance. The implication of findings for school administration is that the attitude of students and student-teachers to teaching profession is a reflection of the attitudes of school personnel towards their career.
