Influence of Proximity To and Accessibility of School On School Choice of Information Technology Students

  • The study determined the profile, level of school choice, and influence of proximity to and accessibility of school on the level of school choice of Information Technology (IT) students. Descriptive statistics revealed that most of the respondents were male, did not have a home province, lived in Manila and Quezon City, belonged to a middle-income class, belonged to a family with five members, spent almost an hour in going to school, and utilized jeepneys and the Light Railway Transit to reach the school. They lived near their school and they perceived that their school was accessible. The university was their preferred school. Perceived accessibility of school was the only factor found to influence school choice. Thus, the null hypothesis stating that proximity to school and accessibility of the school, singly or in combination, would not influence school choice was partially accepted except. Recommendations and implications were also discussed.
