Abstract

Secondary school as a gateway for the development of other sectors of the educational system provides primary school leavers with the opportunity for qualitative education, the platform for skills and knowledge for vocational work, or higher institutions admission. In Nigeria, public discussions frequently focus on educational standards. This study aims to examine the influence of students' reading habits on students' academic performance. A descriptive survey design was adopted. The schools in Ibadan North LGA were randomly selected, making a total of five schools. Each of the participants was randomly selected, totaling 300 students. There was a significant positive relationship between student reading habits and student academic performance (r = 0.84). At F=1.31, there is no significant difference in the reading habit of male and female students. Reading habit enhances the academic performance of students. Therefore, students should be encouraged to inculcate in them the reading habit by providing enabling environment and infrastructures that will stimulate students to read.
