Abstract

This study aimed at assessing the contributions of local government authorities to primary school teachers at places of work and finding the consequences of improper awareness on living and working conditions with specific reference to public primary schools. Tanga City Council was taken as the area of study. In the study, both random and purposive sampling techniques were used and the three data collecting methods of interviewing, questionnaire and structured personal observation were applied. The study revealed that 74.7% of the employees said that local government authorities can contribute much to poor working and living conditions of primary school teachers and 85.6% of the employees said that insufficient budget to primary education can hinder the improvement. The study reveals that working and living conditions of primary school teachers can have both negative as well as positive impact on school performance. In order for local government authorities to improve the working and living conditions of primary school teachers that will enhance school academic performance, it is suggested that the local government authorities should sensitize their employees by assigning enough budget to primary education which will increase motivation to primary school teachers.
