ATTITUDE OF PARENTS TOWARDS PRIMARY EDUCATION OF THEIR CHILDREN IN NIGERIA 

Background of the Study  

Primary education is the foundation a child requires in his or her educational pursuit. The quality of primary education a child gets would determine his performance in a secondary school as well as tertiary level. It will equally affect his or her life after school. As such the importance of primary education cannot be overemphasized.

It is in this regard that Malotyre and Clarkj (1996) opined that the attitude of parent determine the quality of education their children or wards receive in primary school. The positive attitude of the parent has a positive impact on their children's performance and aspiration, helps in raising knowledge and increasing understanding, and facilitates academic progress through the involvement of parents in their children's academic activities. On the other hand, the negative attitude of a parent towards their children's education has a negative effect on their academic progress leading to poor academic performance and consequently the withdrawal of such children from school. This makes such children take to the street and become a menace to society later in life.
