The name of my school is Distinction College. My school community is about a hundred and 70. It is located at 2 Hanover Street, Spanish Town, in the parish of St. Catherine. It is visible especially at events kept at the school that numerous students, male and female engage in the use of alcohol. This habit even sees some students skipping classes and loitering around the surroundings. The researcher therefore thought it necessary to get a scope in the dangerous practice.
Statement of the problem
What are the effects of alcohol use by students within my school?
The researcher selected this topic about alcohol use among students in my school because most of the students in my school are alcoholic. It affect me to see my peers of school are consuming alcohol and nothing has been down about it, if he could find out a way to solve this problem that is destroying the amount of students in my school. The researcher would find out some way to solve this predicament.
METHOD OF INVESTIGATION
In order to complete this S.B.A a questionnaire was used. This method was chosen because responses are gathered in a standardized way, as questionnaires are more objective, certainly more so than interviews Generally it is relatively quick to collect information using a questionnaire.
Some other positives about using a questionnaire are:
It can be used with large and small sample groups.
It improves the possibility of respondents being truthful.
