ABSTRACT

  The study is a comparative study of environmental awareness between public and private

secondary school students. It examined the level of environmental awareness among the students

of  public  and  private  secondary  schools.  It  also  assessed  the  level  of  environmental  awareness

between  male  and  female  secondary  school  students  in  both  public  and  private  secondary

schools.  It  further  determined  the  effect  of  the  school  type  on  the  environmental  awareness  of

secondary school students.

The research design used for the study was a descriptive design. The population for the

study consisted of all the secondary school students in both public and private secondary schools
out  of which 100 students  were selected from  10 schools in  both  public and private secondary

schools using stratified sampling technique. A self designed questionnaire titled Environmental

Awareness  Questionnaire  (EAQ)  was  used  to  collect  information  from  the  respondents.  Data

collected were analysed using descriptive and inferential statistics.

The  results  of  the  study  showed  that  there  is  no  significant  relationship  in  the  level  of

environmental  awareness  between  secondary  school  students  in    public  and  private  secondary

schools as seen in the Pearson chi square result with a Pearson value of 1.000 and a p-value of

0.317 which is greater than 0.05 (the critical alpha value). Also, no significant relationship was

found  between    male  and  female  secondary  school  students  in  their  level  of  environmental

awareness  in  the  two  types  of  schools  used  in  the  study,  p-value  (0.548).  The  study  however

revealed that there a significant relationship exist between the two types of schools used for the

study as indicated by p-value of 0.007 which is less than the critical alpha value of 0.05.

The  study  concluded  that  secondary  school  students  in  private  secondary  schools  have

more  awareness  about  their  environment  than  those  in  the  public  secondary  schools  and  that

gender is not a  factor as far as environmental awareness is concerned between secondary school

students irrespective of the school types (i.e. public and private secondary schools).
