Abstract:
The specific aims of the study were to determine: (1) whether significant differences in frequency of type of response to a questionnaire concerned with religious beliefs occur between pupils classified according to state, location, sex, age, religion, denomination and social class; (2) whether significant differences in frequency of type of response to a questionnaire concerned with moral attitudes, human relationships and certain religious orientations occur between pupils classified according to state, location, sex, age, religion, denomination and social class; (3) whether significant differences in self-esteem occur between pupils classified according to state, location, sex, age, religion, denomination and social class. These specific aims can be expressed in the form of the following broad null hypothesis, viz. that state membership, location, sex, age, religion, denomination and socio-economic class of pupils do not influence significantly religious beliefs, moral attitudes, views on human relationships, religious orientations and self-esteem of pupils in the secondary school range. viii The sample composed 500 Nigerian secondary school pupils in the age range 11-18+ years. There were 268 boys and 232 girls drawn from various states, locations, socioeconomic classes, religions and denominations. Data were collected via two detailed self-constructed questionnaires pertaining to religious beliefs, moral views, human relationships and religious orientations and practices, and also by employing the Coopersmith Self-Esteem Inventory.
