Abstract

This paper highlights an in-depth study on the view of teachers’, learners’ and stakeholders’ on the need for home visitation. A study on the effect of teacher’s home visitation to the academic performance is also a focus of this research. Encompassing three years of home visitation for the learners of Talangan Integrated National High School, Nagcarlan, Laguna, Philippines, the teacher-researcher was able to gather data on the academic performance of the learners during their first semester, particularly the General Academic Strand (GAS) and Accountancy, Business and Management (ABM) strands of Senior High School. The explanatory-sequential mixed method of research was used – quantitative followed by qualitative method. It was revealed that home visitation significantly helps in increasing the academic performance of learners from 85 to 85.33, with p-value 0.01 (alpha level 0.05). Teachers, learners and stakeholders all agree that home visitation helps on the following key essentials of home visitation - establishing contract between teacher, learner and parents; precautionary measure, and not remedy to learner problems; aid in maintaining good academic performance; creating a home extension of learning and evaluation; and inculcating responsible citizenship for future leaders in community. Recommendations to target groups of people were given at the end of the study.
