...relationship between family socio-economic status (SES) and the academic performance of children is well established in sociological research.2 While there is disagreement over how best to measure SES, most studies indicate that children from low SES families do not perform as well as they potentially could at school compared to children from high SES families (Graetz, 1995). Most studies, however, compare students from across all SES backgrounds to reach the conclusion that low SES adversely affects a range of educational outcomes. Another important dimension, however, is the factors that may influence educational outcomes within particular SES bands. This paper presents data on the educational performance of children from financially disadvantaged backgrounds and examines its variation as affected by traditional measures of SES as well as by a range of other family, individual and contextual factors. STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM The purpose of this study is to know the problems encountered by the Grade Seven students of Dona Aurora National High School and the effects of these problems on their academic performance in school. More specifically, the investigation seeks to answer the following questions: 1. Do the following problem areas affect the academic performance of the students? a. Family b. Academics c.

Mataas na edukasyon na hindi lamang binubuhay ng mga aklat o mga bagay na natutunan sa ating mga university at paaralan. Bagaman, kasama ito sa mga pangunahing elemento upang magkaroon ng sapat na edukasyon, ang praktikal na edukasyon na nakabase sa ating araw-araw na pamumuhay ang siya pa ring dapat na piliting maabot. Matibay ang isang edukasyon kung ito ay pinagsamang katalinuhan bunga ng mga pormal na pag-aaral tungkol sa Mathematics, Science, English at mga bagay na tungkol naman sa buhay at kung paano mabuhay ng maayos. Ang edukasyon ang nagiging daan tungo sa isang matagumpay na hinaharap ng isang bansa. Kung wala nito, at kung ang mga mamamayan ng isang lipunan ay hindi magkakaroon ng isang matibay at matatag na pundasyon ng edukasyon, magiging mahirap para sa kanila na abutin ang pag-unlad. Marapat lamang na maintindihan na ang edukasyon ay siyang magdadala sa kanila sa kanilang mga inaasam na mga mithiin.Ang unang layunin ng edukasyon ay upang magkaroon ng kaalaman sa mga bagay-bagay at impormasyon sa kasalukuyan, sa hinaharap at sa kinabukasan.

...COPING MECHANISM Task-oriented / problem-focused coping Problem focused coping also referred to active coping involves controlling managing stress by directly altering situations Edward, 1999. It alters either the environment itself the environment interacts. This type reaction of coping is more stressor and it tends to be used by the people with high score on the big fire personality super factor conscientiousness Watson & Hubbar, 1996. Emotion-oriented / emotion-focused coping In contrast, emotion coping strategies involves the individual’s attempts to regulate emotional responses to, and decrease the effects of a stressful situation Edwards, 1999. This coping strategy can change a person’s emotional response to the stressor. This type of coping usually decreases arousal. People are likely to adopt emotion-focused coping itself and so they must alter their perception of, or responses to, the stressors. Studies with male participants have indicated that those perceiving less control over events are less likely to use problem-focused strategies involving direct actions and more likely to use emotion-focused strategies such as distraction and emotion support David&Sals, 1999. If he doesn’t think anything he does at work ultimately affects whether he gets did off, he is less likely to use active coping strategies. Another type of emotion-focused is venting.
