Education is the capacity to navigate and fulfill one's existence. How well a young person adapts to various environments determines their level of success in life. The child's adaptation is influenced by several aspects, such as domestic, social, educational, and financial adjustment. The objective of the investigator is to do a comparative analysis of the adaptation of secondary school pupils. The investigation was done utilizing the survey methodology. The investigator utilized a standardized inventory to assess the adjustment of secondary school students. The study employed percentage analysis and a t-test as statistical approaches.
The investigation indicated that the level of adjustment among secondary school pupils is moderate. A notable disparity was seen in the emotional adaptation of boys and girls, whereas no significant distinction was detected between male and female secondary school pupils in terms of their adjustment in the family, social, educational, and financial domains.
