The Problem and its Background
The main purpose of this study is to find out the effects of watching television towards the studies and personalities of the pupils in the intermediate level in the elementary department. A total of thirty eight (38) respondents in the elementary department were given questionnaires to find out whether television has been either harmful or beneficial to the pupils’ studies and self. The pupils will be answering questions related to their experience with watching television, how it has affected them in their studies and if television was the reason for their violence. Results showed that majority of the pupils’ feedback on television are positive, but there were a few negativity in some parts which will be discussed later on as we go further into the study. It has also been proven that television isn’t where they were influenced into violence and vulgarity. Many of our respondents believed that television is the best way to entertain a person as young as them as long as that person avoids anything that may affect their studies and themselves. It is also recommended for teachers to teach students about what is good and not good to watch. LOL Teachers may also use television as another mode of education for their pupils’ learning. Therefore, it may help them learn faster because of its high entertainment factor.
Statement of the Problem
Television has showed us what life looks like in the outside world. But these things television had showed us might have influenced our fellow youngsters to do these things out of curiosity. And too much television may bring them to forgetting their studies and bring them to sleep deprivation. But there have also been good things that television had given us, like educational TV programs and even TV ratings to see if the program is suitable for children. The objective of this study is to find out the effects of watching television towards the intermediate pupils of St. John Integrated School.
The purpose of this study is to answer the following questions: 1. Is television where pupils get their vulgarity?
2. Do the pupils neglect their homework and studies because of watching too much television? 3. Is television beneficial or not for a student, overall?
