Keywords: status sosioekonomi, penglibatan pelajar, aktiviti kokurikulum, sekolah menengah


Kajian ini membincangkan konsep cabaran status sosioekonomi dengan penglibatan pelajar dalam aktiviti kokurikulum sekolah menengah. Sosioekonomi ini merujuk kepada profil ibu bapa yang merangkumi tahap pendidikan, pekerjaan dan pendapatan. Sehubungan itu, kedudukan sosioekonomi merupakan salah satu konstruk yang mempunyai hubung kait dengan penglibatan pelajar dalam aktiviti kokurikulum. Penglibatan pelajar merangkumi tiga aktiviti utama kokurikulum iaitu unit beruniform, kelab dan persatuan, serta sukan dan permainan. Sekolah memainkan peranan utama dalam menggalakkan pelajar menyertai aktiviti kokurikulum. Maka, pelbagai langkah perlu dibuat bagi mengenal pasti permasalahan yang mungkin timbul disebabkan kurangnya penglibatan pelajar dalam aktiviti tersebut. Maka, status sosioekonomi dilihat mempunyai cabaran dengan penglibatan pelajar dalam aktiviti kokurikulum sekolah menengah.
