MANAGING STUDENTS’ CULTURAL SHOCK FOR QUALITY EDUCATION IN COMMUNITY SECONDARY SCHOOLS IN RIVERS STATE
This study investigated students’ cultural shock among community secondary schools in Rivers State. There were two research questions and two hypotheses that guided the study. The design adopted for the study was an analytical survey design. The population of the study was 3,061 teachers while a multi-stage sampling technique was used to select 627 teachers (330 male and 297 female) as the sample for the study. A 10 item questionnaire with an established reliability index of 0.84 was used to collect data. The instrument is titled "Students Cultural Shock for Quality Education Questionnaire" (SCSQEQ). The SCSQEQ was validated by two experts in the Department of Educational Management and Planning, University of Port Harcourt. The research questions raised were answered using mean and standard deviation while the hypotheses were tested using z-test at 0.05 level of significance. It was revealed in the findings of the study that male and female teachers sampled for the study agreed on the measures of managing students environmental shock (mean=2.83 and 2.58) but differ in the management of social shock (mean=.2.75 and 2.30). It was therefore recommended among others that school administrators should ensure that they provide the right quantity and quality of human and material resources that will enable students to overcome cultural shock in these schools for quality education delivery.
