An Investigation of Child Friendly School Environment and Social Relationship: Its Effect on Academic Achievement of Public Primary School Children

An Investigation of Child Friendly School Environment and Social Relationship: Its Effect on Academic Achievement of Public Primary School Children CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION   1.1  Background of the study To various individuals, a child may signify different things. A child is defined as anybody under the age of 18 years old, according to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. Every child has the right to an education, since education seems to be a natural occurrence linked with human growth. This is consistent with the statement in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989) that "education is a basic human right" (UNICEF, 2009).Because children are tomorrow's leaders, the welfare of children should be a primary priority for all nations. As a result, the growth of a country is heavily reliant on its...

An Investigation of Preferred Stress Management Strategies Adopted by the Administrative Staff of Tertiary Institutions in Federal Capital Territory, Abuja (a Case Study of Baze University) CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION 1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY Stress is one of the most fundamental problems spanning through human endeavor. Nweze (2005) stated that for two and half decades, stress phenomenon has become a topical issue in management development, seminars and workshops in Nigeria. He further stated that the popularity of stress stems from a number of obvious reasons. First, nobody is immune to stress. We can be caught up in a situation that causes or induces stress in the individual. Thus as a part of human living the young, old, rich, poor, professionals and lay men alike are potential victims of stress. Second, because stress is viewed as the...

An Investigation of the Factors That Encourage Unethical Practices by Organizational Administrators in Nigeria

An Investigation of the Factors That Encourage Unethical Practices by Organizational Administrators in Nigeria CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION 1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY Almost every day, reports of Nigerian organizational executives engaging in various sorts of unethical behavior appear in the top news, whether locally or globally. Organizations in Nigeria have been plagued by unethical business practices, resulting in a high percentage of unethical judgments made by executives, which have a negative impact on both the organization and society (Igbaekemen, Abbah, & Geidam, 2014). Leadership is a complicated interaction between the society and the individuals that is formed by social institutions (Day, 2000). The way a leader interacts with his surroundings (in this case, his company) has a big influence on how he leads (Day, Fleenor, Atwater,...

An Investigation on the Challenges Encountered by the Government in Educational Funding in Kwara State

An Investigation on the Challenges Encountered by the Government in Educational Funding in Kwara State CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION 1.1 Background of the study Education constitutes the very foundation of meaningful socioeconomic, political, and economic growth and development of any nation. Since the implementation of the national policy on education in 1981, there have been a lot of innovations and reforms in the education system. Unfortunately, education in Nigeria, despite these reforms and the continuous huge investment by various regimes, has not sufficiently lifted the nation from the morass of technological under-development, political instability and social decadence. It can be argued that most of these reforms and innovations are poorly implemented due to unsustainable funding. The financing of education is at the heart of the...

An Investigation of Chieftaincy and Kingship Tussle in Igboland: A Case Study of Ogidi Community Anambra State, Nigeria (1904 -2010)

An Investigation of Chieftaincy and Kingship Tussle in Igboland: A Case Study of Ogidi Community Anambra State, Nigeria (1904 -2010)   CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION 1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY The origin of the Igbo people is still a point of contention among experts, particularly ethnologists and historians of Igbo history. The reason for this is that the most important stages of Igbo history and culture have yet to be examined. Those who have made significant anthropological and archaeological discoveries that can be used to deduce Igbo origins and history have yet to be effectively collected, collated, evaluated, and interpreted. Some historians claim that the Igbo had no kings-Igbo enwe eze, which implies that kingship was alien to Igbo culture, introduced and nurtured by outsiders in pre-colonial settings. As the origin of the Igbo...

An Investigation of the National Commission for Civic Education and Ghana's Democracy (A Case Study of the Cape Coast Metropolis)   CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION 1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY For democracy to exist and thrive, a critical mass of a country's inhabitants must have the skills, values, and behaviors that are compatible with democracy. They must understand the fundamental characteristics of a democratic political system in order to be able to use it when their interests are at risk, and they must believe in the relevance of essential democratic principles such as tolerance for differing viewpoints and respect for the rule of law. They must also be willing and capable of participating in local and national politics, and they must think that their involvement is critical to the democratic political system's long-term sustainability...

An Investigation of United States of America War on Terrorism and Its Impact on Global Security (A Case Study of Afghanistan)

An Investigation of United States of America War on Terrorism and Its Impact on Global Security (A Case Study of Afghanistan)   CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION 1.1 Background of the study Terrorism is a phenomena that has become a source of concern for governments all around the globe. Terrorism, according to Jenkins (1975), is a strategy in which violence is employed to create specific effects in a group of people in order to achieve some political goal or ends, and one of the consequences of such a strategy is typically fear, but there are other effects as well. In his contribution, Thornton (1964) defines terrorism as the use of fear as a symbolic act aimed at influencing political behavior via non-traditional methods, including the threat of violence. Terrorism may therefore accomplish political goals by rallying troops sympathetic to...

A Critical Investigation of the Challenges in Recruitment, Selection and Placement of Workers in National Fire Service, Central Region of Ghana.

A Critical Investigation of the Challenges in Recruitment, Selection and Placement of Workers in National Fire Service, Central Region of Ghana.   CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION 1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY In today's development mindset, the relevance of institutions that provide fire prevention and suppression services can not be emphasized. These services are required to safeguard property and save lives. However, in underdeveloped nations like Ghana, the delivery of these services is woefully inadequate. In underdeveloped nations, such institutions are ill-equipped to provide the necessary fire prevention and suppression services mandated by the legislation that formed them. This predicament, along with inadequate service conditions, makes it impossible for these institutions to attract the necessary human resources for successful...

A Critical Investigation of the Challenges and Performance of Internally Generated Revenue Mobilisation ( Case Study of Abura Asebu Kwamankese Local Loevel Development District Assembly, Ghana)

A Critical Investigation of the Challenges and Performance of Internally Generated Revenue Mobilisation ( Case Study of Abura Asebu Kwamankese Local Loevel Development District Assembly, Ghana)   INTRODUCTION 1.1 Background Of Study Many African countries have begun to decentralize in order to improve the role of regional and local governments in development (World Bank, 1999a). The rationale for this is that decentralization will improve the prospects of development at the community level. Decentralisation is also seen as an important tool for aligning public spending with local priorities, strengthening management incentives, and increasing accountability to users at the site of service delivery. In a nutshell, decentralisation will allow local governments to take charge of local development initiatives within their jurisdiction,...

A Collosal Investigation on the Relationship Between E-naira and E-banking

A Collosal Investigation on the Relationship Between E-naira and E-banking   CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION 1.1 Background of the study The notion of electronic banking was born as a result of technological improvement in the banking system. Customers no longer need to visit a physical financial institution to complete a transaction; instead, they can do it from the comfort of their own home using internet and mobile technologies. E-banking is a contemporary, completely automated service that delivers traditional banking products to consumers using information technology platforms and interactive communication channels, according to Amadeh H, Jafarpour M; (2009). Other academic works define e-banking as the automated delivery of innovative and conventional banking goods and services to consumers via interactive electronic communication...

A Critical Investigation of Safety and Security Threats in Hospitality Industries in Cross Rivers State (a Case Study of Some Selected Hotels in Calabar)   CHAPTER ONE: INTRODUCTION 1.1 Background of the study Safety as opined by Chan (2013) is a situation in which threats and circumstances that might cause bodily, mental, or physical damage are minimized in order to protect people's health and well-being. It is a necessary resource for daily life, allowing people and groups to achieve their goals. Software assaults, theft of intellectual property, identity theft, theft of equipment or information, sabotage, and information extortion are all examples of security concerns (Chan,2013). All of the aforementioned issues are some of the challenges that the hotel sector has faced, and they have caused a stutter in the way they do business...
