Abstract

The purpose of the work is to find out reasons for poor teaching and learning of integrated science in secondary schools in Warri, Delta State, Nigeria.  The instrument used was a structured questionnaire. Data for the study were obtained by administering 360 questionnaires to 360 students. Five public secondary schools and five private secondary schools were selected. 36 students were sampled randomly from each secondary school making a total of 360.  300 questionnaires were fully answered and returned. The data were analyzed using frequency counts, percentages and stanine test. The study recommended that government should employ specialist Integrated science teachers, and schools should endeavor to see that only qualified teachers are allowed to handle integrated science subject in secondary schools. Moreover, curriculum developers should review and reduce the syllabus to a manageable size (without reducing the quality at that level) for both teachers and students.
