The Effects of Scarcity on Facilities on the Academic performance of the students
Education, in every human community, is an indispensable instrument for human progress, empowerment and effecting national development. This suggests that a nation thatlacks a sound educational culture and philosophy stands the risk of decay whereas a nation that sees to the development of its education is bound to achieve great success. School facilities are one of the basic educational requirements, and it is necessary to maintain safe and high-quality school facilities from the perspective of maintaining and improving academic performance of the students.
According to Cash (1993), a school “is a promise of the future. Schools should reflect the environment of success . It is a physical representation of a public message about the value of education” Winston Churchill said, “We shape our buildings; therefore, our buildings shape us” (as cited in Gardner, 1981, These comments suggest that the school environment may be just as important as the choice of methods and curriculum to ensuring a positive outcome. Creating an effective school entails designing the facility specifically as an educational environment, which is a complicated issue.
A well-designed building will support its users (Birch & Johnstone, 1975; Knirk, 1993) by addressing a broad spectrum of issues that include occupant-related issues, such as creating a physically comfortable environment with adequate lighting, temperature and noise control, technology and equipment, and personal user access needs. These features address the requirements of the users of a particular space so that the classrooms work well for both teachers and students. A well-planned facility will be able to accommodate changes in use (e. g., class size, technology upgrades, and perhaps flexible-use rooms), be easy to maintain and upgrade, be energy efficient, and address the safety concerns of the occupants (Galluzzo & Bar, 1999; Sydoriak, 1993). The custodial staff needs to be trained to maintain and operate the facility, and costs associated with this need to be included in the costs budgeted for operating the building. Hathaway (1991) asserted that children perceive that their schools reflect important things related to their communities and also believe that good schools help them to make good transitions to life in the community.
Until recently, professionals involved in school design have assumed that as long as certain minimum standards for size, acoustics, lighting, and temperature were met, a productive environment existed and teaching and learning would proceed normally (Conners, 1982). However, more recent research has determined that the physical environment and the learning experience cannot be separated and are considered to be integral parts of each other (Taylor & Gousie, 1988). In prior to this, Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Marikina added AB Mass Communication as one of the courses offered last 2006.
Started with a 89 students. Without enough facilities to be used for their academic learnings and performances. This paper wants to know the effects of scarcity of Mass Communication facilities of PLMar in the academic performance of the 4th yr Mass Communication students SY. 2013-2014. Statement of the problem The study seeks to answer this main problem: 1. What is the effects of scarcity of mass communication facilities of PLMar in the academic performance of the 4th year mass communication students? 2.
Is there a significant relationship between Mass Comm facilities of PLMar and academic performance of 4th yr Mass Comm students SY. 2013-2014? Objectives of the study The study is about the effects of scarcity of mass communication facilities of PLMar in the academic performance of the 4th year mass communication students. In line with the problem, the study has the following objectives: 1. To find out the MassComm facilities available of Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Marikina. 2. To determine the academic performance of the 4th year students of Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Marikina SY. 2013-2014. 3. To find out the effects of the scarcity of Mass Comm facilities of PLMar to the academic performance of 4th yr MassComm students. SY. 2013-2014. Hypothesis: Alternative: There is a significant relationship between the mass comm facilities of PLMar and academic performance of 4th year masscomm students. Null: There is no significant relationship between the mass comm facilities of PLMar and academic performance of 4th year masscomm students. Significance of the Study:
The outcome of the study will serve as a useful baseline or additional information to the following: This study is will determine how the scarcity of facilities affects the academic performance of PLMar 4th year Mass Communication students school year 2013-2014. Through this study the school administration will know the minor and major problems of their beloved students and their needs in terms of building facilities, it will give them information on what things they need to develop to encourage the student to study harder and participate in school more actively and effectively.
The result of this study will also provide the government pieces information on how they are going to create a project that will meet the needs of the students of Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Marikina which is their responsibility, the better the facilities they’re going to provide the better the quality of graduate students their going to produce.
This study will be useful to the future researchers for it will serve as a related study where they can see a basis in constructing their own research with the same area of concern. Scope and Limitation The purpose of the study is to find out the effects of scarcity of Mass Communication facilities to the academic performance of 4th year students school year 2013-2014. This will only tackle about the scarcity in facilities of Mass Communication department.
The study shall only focus on Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Marikina 4th year Mass Communication students enrolled from and semester of school year 2013-2014, the respondents chosen for the study are composed of 10% of the total student body. The study concentrates only on the facilities of Mass Communication students that are needed to be provided or to be improved for the betterment of the students’ performance.
