Impact of Efficiency of Classroom Management on Reducing High School Students Level of Stress in the Kumasi Metropolis in Ghana

Description

The main purpose of the study was to investigate the impact of classroom management on reducing high school students’ level of stress in the Kumasi Metropolis. Specifically, the study sought to determine the perceived stress level of senior high school students and how teacher classroom management positively influences students stress level.  The descriptive survey design was adopted for the study where standardized closed-ended questionnaire was adopted to collect data from 500 students and 300 teachers in senior high schools in the Kumasi Metropolis. The study adopted the Cross-tabulation to analyze students’ level of stress according to the gender and Structural Equation Modeling to ascertain the positive influence of teacher classroom management on students perceived stress level. The study found that majority of senior high school students are highly stressed with majority of female’s students being highly stressed out. The Study further found that teacher classroom management positively significantly affects high school students perceived stress level. This implies that teachers are supposed to reform their teaching and learning strategies, how they discipline students and handle issues in class personally.  The study’s findings will be beneficial to high school teachers and school heads to become aware of how they can possibly help highly stressed students in the classroom. Further studies can be conducted on the topic by involving a larger sample in order to generalize the findings of the study to a large population which was a limitation for this study.
