GENDER AND PERFORMANCE IN ARABIC LANGUAGE LEARNING IN LAGOS
This study focused on gender analysis of performance and enrolment for Arabic Language in a selected Arabic school in Lagos State. The study adopted the survey method for choosing the admitted students during the three years between 2014 and 2016. The purposive sampling technique was employed to select Daaru Da’wah wal Irshaad as a case study. The results revealed that the male Arabic students performed significantly better than the female students. Secondly, it indicated that the enrolment of males is far higher than that of females. The study concludes on the need to encourage the womenfolk to cultivate Arabic learning and sensitize them on the wealth of opportunity accruable from learning the language.
