Abstract

The conditions under which education systems contribute to economic and social development have. Environmental positions of schools such as distance from urban centers, and personality and attitude of students and teachers’ towards school affect students’ performance. This study was conducted using field research involving interviews and surveys conducted with 229 administers located at three directorates of the North Badia region. The subjects were selected using stratified random sampling.  Results indicated that education at Mafraq Governorate lacks quality and quantity of supply being located away from urban centers. Village distance is not associated with any of the elementary grade inputs. Further, village distance is associated with number of students at eleventh grade computer, nursing, and vocational streams, and number of sections at eleventh grade literature stream.  Finally, it showed a strong and negative association with number of students at twelfth grade computer stream, and positive association of number of students’ vocational stream, and a positive association with number of sections of literature stream.  Also, village distance is only associated with number of arts teachers and school education levels, and negatively associated with teachers’ attitude and available school services. Many schools are suffering from small number of students in geographically dispersed villages. It is more appropriate to increase numbers of students to a range of 20-30 per section to stimulate competition among students.
