Journal of Educational and Social Research
From time immemorial, teaching has remained a complex process. This complexity stems from the general belief that anybody can teach. Beginning from the housewife who taught her daughter how to prepare food to a roadside mechanic who taught his apprentice how to service a car, it is the act of teaching that has taken place.

... paper is specifically focused on the perception of parents about how they perceive teachers and their duties in the ten Local Government Education Areas (LGEA) of Oke-ogun, Oyo state. A sample of 673 participants was taken for the study. This comprises of 391 men and 282 women with average age of 51.25years and standard deviation of 2.36years. Descriptive research design was used for the study and simple random sampling was used for the study. The study was carried out to identify the roles of the teachers as role models to the learners in the academic performance of learners in public examinations and in the mode of behaviour as means of providing solution to the problem. The manners in which they perform their duty are actually working against effective performance of our learners in schools and in their ways of life. The researcher recommends that the government should try as much as possible to inaugurate a very formidable monitoring group that will check the excesses of these teachers to forestall wastages in the educational sector. It is of the opinion of the researcher that if the abovementioned factors are put into consideration in teaching-learning process, there may be improvement in the performances and the behaviour of learners in our schools and society at large.
