CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
1.1         Background to the Study
The school activities which centered on teaching and learning were characterized by means of interaction and association using English Language as the dominant acceptable channel for social interaction or communication. The means of communication has become important for the understanding of all lessons or subject regardless of either it is language or others. This identifies the concept of teaching language across the subjects or the curriculum. In this respect examining the efficiency of teaching and the level of students understanding remain a center of teachers and planners concern. This implies that there must be a way, means of assessing both teachers and students academic activities in schools. One of this means of assessing schools, students, teachers and policies is the research on existing practices or structure of educational policy implementator. It is in the light of this position that this study want to examined students English Language performance in school of Sokoto metropolis. The schools involved are all government public secondary schools, but one of the schools i.e. is a class preference school going by its nature of preference in society (Mahuta 2007).However these schools are using the same curriculum and they are under the same National Policy on Education (NPE, 2014). Therefore, assessing their students performance in English language will be important to justify if there is performance differences and why in the schools. Considering the facts The researcher embarks on this study to compare the performance of students from Usmanu Danfodio University Model Secondary School (UDUMSS) and Government Day Secondary School Runji Sambo (GDSS) in English language. English language which we know is very important to teaching and learning in Nigeria. It is used as a medium of instruction in Schools. Its standard is usually measured in terms of students’ performance in (SSCE) Examinations i.e West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE) and the National Examination Council (NECO).

It is claimed that student differences could be as a result of poor performance in the language of instruction. Whatever the case might be, it is suggested the situation has accounted for alarming concern by the Teachers, Parents, State Government as well as individuals too.
