Description The study investigated the application of Dewey’s notion of Education as a participation in social consciousness among secondary school students. The study adopted survey research design. Simple random sampling technique was adopted in selecting 168 SSS2 students from four intact classes in four randomly selected secondary schools in Udi Education Zone, Enugu State, Nigeria. A questionnaire instrument, developed by the researcher and validated by experts was used in data collection. The reliability of the instrument was established using Cronbach alpha procedure and the reliability index was found to be 0.89. The study was guided by four research questions and two hypotheses. The hypotheses were tested at .05 significant level. One of the results of the findings showed that students exposure to electronic media, peer influencing, student’s poverty level and academic disposition are all aspects of moral decadence they exhibit due to lack of Igbo moral concepts and value systems in them, which influence their social consciousness. There was no significant difference (P < .05) found in the opinions of the male and female respondents regarding the extent of moral decadence among the students due to malformation of the Igbo moral concepts and values that influence their social consciousness, among other issues.
