En effet, les analyses ont montré un effet positif et significatif des représentations sociales de l’échec, des clichés du nombre d’échec et des croyances autour de l’échec sur la motivation scolaire chez ces étudiants. Dès lors, il semble nécessaire pour l’Etat et les Universités en place de décider de rendre l’accès de ces étudiants plus facile aux cellules d’écoute et d’accompagnement psychopédagogique.</p> <p><strong>Contributeur Unique A La Théorie Politiques, Aux Et A La Pratique&nbsp;:</strong> Ceci par les moyens de la sensibilisation permanente et médiatisée sur l’importance de rencontrer régulièrement un conseiller d’orientation et/ou un psychologue scolaire. Et aussi la nécessité d’impliquer les familles afin d’influencer les cognitions sociales qui entourent l’échec scolaire et par la même occasion de réduire la déperdition scolaire.</p> 2024-03-17T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Tadaha Moffo Achille https://carijournals.org/journals/index.php/JAPSY/article/view/1579 Gender and Age as Determinants of Environmental Perception 2023-12-19T01:43:52+03:00 Ifeanyichukwu.
