CHAPTER I

Background of the Study

“Poverty must not a hindrance to learn, but learning must be an escape to


poverty”

In today’s generation money plays an important role in our lives. Finances


affects a student’s academic activity. In an educational institutions, a student’s
academic performance defines a student’s success. Academic performance tells
how well a student do in school that meets the standard set by the school. Most
people believed that one’s intelligence is defined by grades however, there are
many factors affecting a student’s grades. One of the factors is the financial
support.

In an academic institution, a student’s basic needs covers school fees such


as subject requirements. As a student, being unstable financially is one of the
biggest problems to face. Some are being deprived in going to school because of
poverty, while there are also some who can go to school but have low grades
because they fail to pass their school requirements due to lack of financial
support. Financial difficulty is among the top factors that causes low grades and
sometimes dropping out of the student.

Many students, especially those who are taking TVL strand, have
difficulties towards their studies. They are the one who provide the ingredients
for their cookery class.

Financial problems among student is the serious problem so they must take
some solution such as spending their money to avoid financial problem from
occurring.

While the advantages of the students who are not stable financially are
striving hard to finish their studies. In order for them to success.

Review of Related Literature

Financial Support

Many students rely on loans to get them through college. Yet, sometimes
students borrow too much money while in school. Excess loan money leads to
dept that students must pay back after graduation delaying other financial goals.
With the proper educational support about living independently, students can
reduce their chance of obtaining unnecessary dept from educational loans.
Young adults generally learn their skills from parents and teachers as children.
However, parents often overlook teaching financial skills, such as budgeting and
investing, while their children are still living at home. Instead, children are forced
to learn how to handle their money when entering college and sometimes they
make mistakes that will cost them several years of repayment of loans. This
study examines what kinds of financial problems student face. By knowing what
problems students encounter, it is possible for educators to offer a course that
teachers the financial skills necessary to overcome these problems. The
participants were asked to indicate what financial education they would be
interested in if offered. Nearly all of the students expressed an interest in
learning about financial management.

Review of Related Study

The recession may be over, but as tuition and dept continue to rise, many
students are still under extreme pressure to make ends meet and for some, it’s
at the expense of academic pursuits.

In part responding to critics who wondered why they hadn’t explored this
earlier, the creators of the National Survey of Student Engagement this year
asked how finances were affecting student’s academic activity. The results, NSSE
director Alexander C. McCormik said, are “not too surprising, but worrisome.”

About 60 percent of full time Seniors who work more than 2 hours per
week said they frequently looked into working more hours to cover costs. Further
32 percent of Senior said financial concerns interfered with their academic
performance.

“You have to wonder what the impact is” said McCormick, who is also an
associate professor of educational leadership and policy studies at Indiana
University at Bloomington. One’s hopes that students are renting textbooks or
borrowing from a friend rather than simply going without but even then, he said,
if a student can’t open a textbook whenever needed, it’s not ideal.
