Abstract:

This descriptive study aimed to determine the relationship between the level of television exposure to (a) News and Information Programs, and (b) Entertainment Programs and the attitudes of students towards school discipline. The participants were the 155 randomly selected Fourth Year students of Fort San Pedro National High School. The participants were classified as to sex and grade-point average (GPA) for the school year 2008–2009. The data were gathered through a researcher-constructed and duly validated questionnaire-checklist. Statistical tools employed were mean, frequency count, percentage analyses, and standard deviation for descriptive analysis. The t-test, ANOVA, and Pearson’s r were employed for inferential statistics. All were set at 0.05 alpha level of significance. The study revealed that the students were “moderately exposed” to television’s (a) News and Information Programs, and (b) Entertainment Programs when taken as an entire group and classified according to sex and GPA. No significant differences were noted in the level of television exposure of students to (a) News and information and (b) Entertainment Programs when classified according to sex and GPA. It was further found out that the students had “desirable” attitude towards school discipline when taken as an entire group and when classified according to sex. When classified as to GPA, those who had Very Good GPAs had a “highly desirable” attitude while those with Good, Fair and Poor GPAs had a desirable attitude. Significant differences were noted in the attitude of the students towards school discipline when they were classified according to sex and GPA. However, no significant relationship existed between the level of television exposure of students to (a) News and Information Programs and (b) Entertainment Programs and their attitudes towards school discipline. The result of this study is true only for this group of participants in this particular year, time, and place.
