CHAPTER 1: INTRODUCTION
1.1 Introduction of the study
The concept of population education emerged in the context of population and development - the
two most pressing issues before humankind today. Both are closely interrelated and both
encompass a number of complex factors. Viewed as an epiphenomenon of the process of
development, population issues have aroused widespread concern among almost all the members
of the committee of nations. There have been undaunted endeavors to accelerate the pace of
socioeconomic development through the instrumentalities of science and technology and to
secure distributive justice for the people through different institutional mechanisms. But those are
confronted with some basic population related questions of how many people are going to inhabit
the earth, how they are to be supported and enabled to make their contributions to development
efforts, what they are going to bequeath to posterity and how long they are going to be sustained
by the natural and human resource base. The rapid population growth and the concomitant
problems of poverty, lack of adequate health and educational facilities, malnutrition, nonfulfillment of even the basic needs of a vast majority of the populace, paucity of employment
opportunities, dwindling natural resources and consequent environmental degradation constitute
critical dimensions of the present population and development phenomena.

Population education which emerged as an educational innovation in response to population


problems only about four decades ago, is now being experimented in over a hundred countries of
the world in non-too-uniform a manner. It has been introduced in the education systems of
different countries as an important component of the multi-pronged strategy employed to help
nations attain the goals of population stabilization and sustainable development.
Very few educational programmers have matched its pace of expansion and adopted such varied
conceptual frameworks and strategies of curriculum transaction. Perhaps no other educational
concept has experienced such frequent changes in its framework and been subjected to so many
misunderstandings as the concept of population education. This has been so because of not only
the nature of the context in which it emerged but also its newness and its complex characteristics.
The teacher in the population education program is required to achieve the prefixed aims and
objective .For this purpose he has to employee suitable instructional methods and procedure.

The Population Education is included in the education system in the country to the realization of
the potential role.
Dr V.K.R.V Rao had stated in Bombay Seminar .The theme of the twin workshop was
Population Education: Tasks and Challenges.
The purpose of Global Population Education
1)To help students to develop an insight in to interrelationship between population growth and
the process of social and economic development at the individual, family and individual and
international levels
2) To make children aware of the population situation in the country.
3)To make students aware about Global Population.
4) To help student to have rational decision about their quality of life that they would like to have

1.2 Need And Significances Of The Study


The study is important because.
A teacher can transform understanding, desirable altitudes into actions and pedagogical
representations. A teacher is effective only when she can transform the student through her
knowledge. Through this study we want to sensitize the teachers towards the needs of the
students.
The study is important for the administrators, so that they provide immense training for the
teachers and also motivate teacher. Greater understandings about which teaching practices, skills
and knowledge positively impact student, that will help strengthen all aspects of teaching.
It will provide valuable information of relative effectiveness of teachers knowledge on
population education .It will serves as the resource material for the others who wants to carry out
the research in related areas.
The purpose of the research is to discover answer through the application of the scientific
procedure.

1.7 Review
Bharat Kumar D Patel(2012)conducted a study on awareness of population education among B.Ed
Trainers with reference to different variables .The main Objectives of the study is to examine the
awareness of population education among B.ED trainers and to examine the awareness of
population education with reference to marital status of trainees.
The study found out that there are significant difference in awareness of population education
between trainees of Science stream and Commerce stream the trainees of science stream found more
aware.
K Balalsubramaniam and other conducted A study of the reaction of High School teachers to
Population Education as Integral part of curriculum .
The study found out that a very high awareness of the population problem In India was
found amongst teachers . The teachers replied that unemployment low standard of living and food
shortage were due to over population.
Leodinito Y. Caete, Ped.D.(2003)conducted A study of population growth on basic education
development. The study found that education is strongly related to a broad range of demographic
behaviors. The speed of education throughout a population has been shown to be of central
importance for the long-term demographic transition from high to low level fertility.
Ozzie G Simmons (April 1970) conducted A study in family planning. The study found that
population education is a promising means of diffusing information about population problem
more pervasively than through the channels ordinarily available to family planning program, but it is
also important to produce desired changes in attitudes, behavior and values in the next generation..

CHAPTER 2 : RESEARCH DESIGN


2.1 Introduction
Research methodology is a planning stage of research which is usually made logically visualizing it
practicality
4

MCT COLLEGE OF EDUCATION & RESEARCH 2014-2015

Selection of research design includes 4 components:

Research methodology
Sampling design
Research tool
Statistical technique

Research design has two basic purposes:


1) To provide answer to research questions
2) To control the variance

Research design Definition


A detailed outline of how an investigation will take place. A research design will typically include
how data is to be collected, what instruments will be employed, how the instruments will be used
and the intended means for analyzing data collected.

2.2 Methodology of the study


For collection of data, there are various methods used and each one is different from other in many
aspects and each has their own limits and delimits.
The different methods of educational research are as follows:
1) HISTORICAL METHOD
2) EXPERIMENTAL METHOD
3) SURVEY METHOD
Methodology refers to the technique or the means, which is adopted by the investigator in order to
achieve his goal. The methodology is an essential part of the research.
The methodology of study depends upon the aims and objectives of study.
Method adopted for present study

Survey method
A field of applied statistics, survey methodology studies the sampling of individual units from a
population and the associated survey data collection techniques, such as questionnaire construction
and methods for improving the number and accuracy of responses to surveys.

CHAPTER 3:RESEARCH DESIGN


3.1 Introduction
Analysis and interpretations are two important components of a study. Proper analysis and
subsequent interpretation leads to the desired result that can be most effectively used. To research
behind any problem or field, it requires relevant data. Data is nothing but a collection of information
about the problem which has possible reasons.
Though data collection is the most important aspect of the study, analysis helps us to get the clear
idea, which leads to proper interpretation.
There are various tools such as tabulation of data, graphical representation like pie diagram or bar
diagrams that give us a clear idea of problem as well as helps in easy interpretation. For this task the
researcher has to make questionnaire which consist of few questions related to the problem
Interpretation not only depends on the data collected but also on the analysis done. Wrong analysis
will definitely lead to misrepresentation which in turn affects the results. Interpretation provides the
7

MCT COLLEGE OF EDUCATION & RESEARCH 2014-2015

basis of conclusion and suggestions providing remedial measures of the difficulties faced during
study.
In short we can say that analysis and interpretation are two sides of the same coin.
