Usman, Yunusa Dangara; Madudili, Chinyere Geraldine
Online Submission
Stakeholders in Nigeria have raised concerns over the trend of poor academic performance of students in all categories of schools Nigeria. Foremost concern has hitherto been narrowed on the quality of teachers, teaching process, school administrative efficacy and the apathetic attitude of students to their studies due to distractions that impede learning progress. Learning environment as a variable that contributes either positively or negatively to the academic achievements of student has attracted only little attention in the struggle of finding a lasting solution to the persistent lackluster result by students from the education system in the country. Since the learning environment has recently come to limelight as an essential area that should be considered and well managed to enhance students' academic performance, this paper therefore examines the concept of learning environment, learning theories and the relevance of learning environments on students' performance in Nigeria. Having identified the role that learning environment plays in the life of every individual whether as a school administrator, student or teacher, some recommendation on the modalities to make the learning environment productive and competitive are suggested.
