Three research objectives were formulated: (i) to examine the role of teacher‟s motivation in improving the pupils‟ academic performance, (ii) to identify factors that contribute to low teachers‟ morale and (iii) to suggest strategies for improving teachers‟ motivation to enhance the provision of quality education in public primary schools. Descriptive research survey design was employed in the collection of data.
