Description Introduction: Education is a powerful and uncontrolled cornerstone that a nation can build towards the creation of responsible citizens, particularly young people for the future.
Purpose: It is therefore very important for this study to be conducted among them in order to find out that their parents’ socioeconomic status have a positive or negative effect on their academic performance.
Methodology: The study adopted an ex post-facto form of research design. The target sample for this study consisted of 120 second year pre-service teachers selected using simple random sampling from three units of the School of General Education. Descriptive statistics of mean and standard deviation were used and t-test (Independent sample) was used to test hypotheses at 0.05 alpha level of significance. It was analyzed after the data was collected.
Results: The results of the study showed that students with a high socio-economic status had a high academic output compared to students with a middle socio-economic status. On the other hand, there was also a significant difference between middle and low socio-economic status students in terms of their academic success.
Recommendations: Government should also provide ample reading resources and a driving learning environment for less privileged pre-service teachers so that they can also compete favorably with their peers with higher socio-economic status.
