Abstract: The study sought to assess the causes of broken homes; problems faced by pupils from broken homes and the effects of broken homes on the academic performance of Basic school pupils in the Assin-South District. A descriptive survey was the research design used for the study. In all, a total of 60 respondents made up of 45 pupils and 15 parents were used as sample size for the study. A purposive sampling procedure was used to select the sample. Questionnaire and interview were the 2 main instruments used for the study. Data from the questionnaire were analysed quantitatively using descriptive statistics mainly frequency and simple percentages, whereas data from the interview were analysed qualitatively. The study revealed that there were several factors that cause broken homes among Basic school pupils and the four (4) most serious causal factors include divorce; forced or early marriage; death and sexual incompatibility. It was also observed that pupils from broken homes faced a lot of problems and the 2 major problems identified were academic problems and financial problems. Also, it was found out that the specific problems faced by pupils from broken homes include early engagement in sexual activities; poor academic performance; school drop-out, low self-esteem and insecurity. Finally, it was revealed that broken homes had impacted negatively on the pupils’ academic performance as well as their educational progress and development in schools. It was recommended that stakeholders in education should adopt innovative strategies to help solve the numerous problems faced by Basic school pupils from broken homes so as to help them perform better academically and also behave well in schools.
