Abstract

The study investigated on practices of teachers in community secondary schools without adequate teaching and learning facilities in Bukoba Municipality, Kagera. Specifically the study examined if adequacy of teaching and learning facilities is one of the factors affecting teachers’ motivation and job satisfaction, identified factors making teachers to remain at work and analysed strategies and methods which teachers use to teach in community secondary schools without adequate teaching and learning facilities. The study adopted a mixed research approach, and case study was the design used. The study revealed that teachers are not motivated and not satisfied with the adequacy of teaching and learning facilities. The study showed that teachers are remaining at work although teaching and learning facilities are not adequate because employment opportunities are minimal. Lecturing method and improvisation are mainly used by teachers to teach in community secondary schools without adequate teaching and learning facilities. Adequacy of teaching and learning facilities in community secondary schools in which teachers teach influences their level of job satisfaction and motivation. Inadequacy of teaching and learning facilities found not to be a major source of teachers’ quit from teaching job though strategies and methods teachers use to adjust themselves with teaching job are challengeable. The study recommends appropriate strategies to be designed to find adequate school facilities to motivate and satisfy teachers. Also, the study recommends that schools should not be registered until teaching and learning facilities are adequate to check the problem of having schools without adequate school facilities.
