Abstract

The study was investigated on teacher factors influencing student’s achievement in community secondary schools in Morogoro municipal council. This study focused on both teachers and students in three community secondary schools. It was guided by the following three research objectives: The first one was to assess teacher’s academic achievement in the determination of student’s outcome. The second objective was to determine teachers’ motivation and students’ academic performance the last was to examine the views of students on teacher effectiveness in their academic performance. The study was conducted in three community secondary schools which were Lupanga, Kingalu and Kihonda. The sample comprised of 30 respondents; 15l teachers and 15 students of form two up to form our. The instrument used for data collection was questionnaire, interview and focus group discussion. Observation checklist also was used in gathering the information. The instruments were validated first by the supervisor then the pilot study. The major findings of this study revealed that teacher’s academic achievement was adequate enough in facilitating student’s performance in these schools whereby most of them have a bachelor degree of their field. This qualification is quite enough in their effectiveness in promoting student’s performance. The selection and using of the appropriate method of teaching was affected by overcrowding of students in the classroom since teachers face difficult in which method can fit with the big number of students in a classroom. Also absence of teacher’s motivation like poor living environment, overloaded, low payment (salary), poor promotion schemes, poor infrastructures, lack of teaching and learning materials affect absence of in-service training all these affect their effectiveness hence poor student’s performance.
