Abstract

The objective of this research was to investigate the academic dimension of classroom learning environment and students’ nurses’ attitude toward schooling. To achieve this objective, the following hypothesis was postulated, there was no significant relationship between students’ perception of their classroom academic environment and their attitude toward schooling. To test this hypothesis two instrument were employed for this study. One was 25 – item classroom learning environment questionnaire. The second questionnaire was a 20-item attitudinal questionnaire which sought to get information on students’ attitude toward attendance at school, altogether giving a total of 45-item questionnaire. This was used to collect data from two hundred and forty (240) students, randomly sampled from the twelve schools selected for the study. Twenty (20) students were selected from each schools of southern senatorial district. In Cross River State these responses obtained from the instrument were analyzed using the Pearson product moment correlation coefficient. The result showed that there is a significant relationship between students’ perception of their classroom academic environment and attitude toward schooling. Based on this finding, it was recommended that the teacher should create and maintain social learning environment, relationship with peers, inculcate tone of disciplinary measures and finally, healthy academic learning environment such that will help the students develop the right attitude toward schooling. All the resource persons involved in the training of the teachers should equip them with the necessary knowledge that will enable them to effectively manipulate the principles of human relation. These will aid in the development of a healthy learning environment
