This study investigated the influence of educational infrastructures on learners’ behaviour in the public schools in Yenagoa Local Government Area of Bayelsa State. The researcher observed the rampant act of misbehaviour by learners in public schools and sought to determine if the nature of the educational infrastructure available in these public schools affects the learners’ behaviour. A Questionnaire titled Educational Infrastructures and its Impact on Learners’ Behaviour questionnaire (ELLSPB) was designed to determine the degree of the availability of these infrastructures and the extent to which they impact the learners’ behaviour. The researcher also used interview and observation techniques. In the end, only 89 copies of the questionnaire out of the 250 copies that were distributed were returned. The chi–square was used as the method of analysis and the results of the analysis of the data obtained showed that there is indeed a significant relationship between educational infrastructures and learners’ behaviour. The null hypothesis was rejected and its alternative was accepted. The researcher recommends, among others, that school authorities and staff should work as a team to ensure that these vital educational infrastructures are used properly to prevent damages or promptly report these damages when they occur and have them properly maintained.
