Abstract


This study examined peer Influence on School Learning among students of varying socio-economic backgrounds. One hundred and twenty students (60 males and 60 females) with a mean age 15.1 years were randomly selected from four co-educational Secondary Schools in Ikenne Local Government area of Ogun State. Two questionnaires were used for data collection. A significant difference among the peer influence on school learning of students from high, moderate and low socio-economic status was found. Other hypotheses were not supported by the results data analysis. A study of this kind serves as an eye-opener to classroom teachers and parents on how peers of varying backgrounds could influence one another\'s learning at school.
