BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Exploitation of students by teachers is not a new phenomenon in our society. In
the past, some students have been physically and emotionally exploited.
Students are made to work in their teachers farm, carry firewood to their
teachers house, fetching water for their teachers etc. nowadays, it is a
different thin altogether, the act of selling monographs, and text books has
given some bad impression on the lecturers manipulate and exploit the students
to make their own money without considering the bad economic situation
prevailing in Nigeria now. Again students are been exploited by paying one levy
or the other like departmental, levy, test levy etc in the years past, when
education was what it suppose to be, students were not being taxed for anything.
Text books and handouts were given free of charge but now the reverse has been
the case, teachers have turned our schools to become book shops where buying
and selling of books are made available and compulsory in the name of money,
both in primary and secondary level.
indigent students that have no money to buy these books are being made to fail
the course because of the fact that they could not purchase these books.
Teachers also exploit the students through sexual harassment and sorting of
result where the students are made to pay either in cash or kind. Students are
no longer serious with their studies since they feel that if they are able to
meet up with the demands of their teachers they pass. For the fact that this
situation of exploitation has been a burden to students in secondary schools
and tertiary institutions, parents and guardians who see to the education of
their children and relations have little or no left over money with them due to
the fact that the money were being taken away by teachers in one way or the
other. Money used in the olden days to train three to four people in the
university is now spent on one person.
STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
teachers who have made textbooks and handiwork compulsory in primary schools
have created some anxiety and stealing into pupils, while in secondary and
higher institutions have created also some anxiety and frustration into the
students. I the sense that students are forced to have carryover by some
lecturers that made their monographs and text books to be compulsory. These
teachers go along way to prevent students from having their continuous
assessment thereby making them to have incomplete results. This has created the
act of do or die attitude towards students who have been seeking ways of
passing their courses. This leads to student’s starvation and also make
prostitution and promiscuity to become well pronounced especially in higher institutions.
Because of this immoral attitude by teachers, a good number of students have
fallen victims of contacting sexual transmitted disease as well as victims of
unwanted pregnancy in our higher institutions of learning today. This study
