CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.0 BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY

Deviant can be said to be all types of behaviour or acts which are inconsistent with the rules and regulations of an organizational set up. Organization as defined by Ejiogu (1990) is a social unit that pursues specific goal which they are structured to serve. Typical organization includes prisons, schools, churches and universities. In each organization members interact with one another to achieve the desired goal. This type of inconsistent behaviour can be seen in the homes, societies, establishments or institutions of learning. Social organization therefore can be described more operationally as the ways in which human conduct becomes socially organized and how the structure of the social relations therein and share beliefs and orientations that unit the members of the organization effect the members conduct.

The school is a social organization and as such it has got its established pattern of behaviour expected in the form of rules and regulations which given the official actions of the rector, lecturers, students and anyone group of personnel that work in it. The noncomformity to the norms of any group or organization is what sociologist called “Deviant behaviour”. It is a behaviour whereby one turns away from the social standard of the society. IT is common in students of higher institutions not to follow the patterns of behaviour laid down for them by the school authority. Higher education is the form of education received after secondary education and before going further to any other stage. Students between the age of 18 and 24 are expected to be in higher institutions. This is the age group where the students will be trying to understand their environment. While doing this many things may happen which may lead to juvenile delinquency, deviancy etc. which are psychological problems.

It is very hard any day passes without any comment on it coming from individuals, newspapers, radio news and television news and bulletins. Opinions are divided as to who is to blame for deviant behaviour in institutions of higher learning. Some hold management boards and lecturers responsible while others hold parents and students. Yet a section argues that it is caused by government take-over of schools, lack of moral and religious instructions in schools and some say it is caused by inadequate supply of necessary equipment and personnel to schools. Apart form these views expressed, it is clear that many students have no respect for their lecturers and this attitude they carry over outside the school. No child can survive in isolation. The peer group they move with, the parents, the school environment and our society in general contribute seriously to the problem of deviancy being faced in our community in general and higher institutions in particular. Poor parental relationship causes deviant behaviour because some of the parents, in pursuit for money leave their children in the total care for themselves.

Deviant learning experience in the school giving society the false impression that the development are not taught in the school or that the school administration is weak. In Nigeria society, deviancy may be conceived as a factor which militates against the good work of lecturers since it is believed that lecturers effectiveness is mostly evaluated in terms of student educational achievement and behaviour of the child. Some of the common deviant behaviour include stealing, truancy, disobedience to school, parents and community at large, mass demonstration leading to destruction of property, drug abuse, smoking etc.

1.1 STATEMENT OF PROBLEM

This study is an attempt to find out the causes and effects of Deviancy in tertiary institution. As the wave of crime is mounting in our society, so also have experience and research shown that the rate at which school offences etc. are being committed in spite of strict school regulations. There is no more respect for lecturers and even their own parents. Students go to the extent of joining armed robbers assassinating people and even trafficking in drugs. Higher institutions seem to turn to institute for senior criminals where future-armed robbers, hired killers, drug traffickers and secret cults are trained. Our society is corrupt to the extent that these students are looking for material things fame and other things.

1.3 SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY

This study will reveal the causes and effects of common deviant behaviours in some higher institutions of learning in Enugu. The finding of this research will throw more light to how each member of the society is contributing to the common deviant behaviour. In this study, the students will benefit from it by knowing the implications of deviant behaviour in the academic, character and social life. Some students indulge in it because their friends are behaving like that without knowing what they are doing to themselves. Society will also benefit from it because when the student are behaving as expected, the society will be happy, their norms, belief will be respected and the social standard of the society will be improved. Parents will be benefited because their children will be listening to their teaching.

The institution will benefit also because when the students have changed from their bad behaviour and turn to be new leave you see that there will be order, peace, discipline and standard in the school which will attract parents to sent in their children there. It will further help students to know how to behave well that is know the good behaviour, know how to behave in the society, know the norms, belief and culture of the society. Discipline in the school will be achieved. Respect and obedience will be observed in the home

1.4 LIMITATION OF THE STUDY

The researcher, while carrying out this research project encountered the following problems: There was a limited time given for the research work which was not enough to do thorough research. The researcher would have covered more than three (3) schools, but it will need more time and spending of money which is beyond the ability of the researcher. Moreso, there was lack of relevant textbooks. The researcher could not do much on the literature review because of limited resource books, he was constrained to work on few available books. Finally, several attempts made to carry out interview with some school lecturers were proved abortive. They were either away on special duties or very busy attending to other matters.
