Abstract

This study investigated Gender Differences in Motivation among Secondary School Teachers. The objectives of the study were: to examine the factors leading to motivation in teaching among males and female teachers in secondary schools; assess the differences in the levels of motivation in teaching among males and female teachers in secondary schools; and to investigate significant relationship between sex and motivation in teaching in secondary schools. The study was conducted in Dar es Salam City. Also, the study involved Heads of Secondary, District Secondary Education Officer, Teachers Union, Education Inspectors and teachers’ representatives from community secondary schools. The data of the study were collected through interview and questionnaire methods. The data collected were analyzed descriptively and quantitavely. The findings of the first objective revealed that there was a slight difference on the factors that led to motivation in teaching among males and female teachers in secondary schools. The key factors that raised motivation to female teachers were the idea that they could be identified as having a job and that they were doing something of worth. Men on their side, were more motivated when their job got them out of poverty. The results of second and third objectives reflected that there were no different levels of motivation among male and female teachers. The study recommends that the government and nongovernment institutions should give motivation to the teachers by teachers by building the houses of teachers, providing electricity to the places where there is the problem of electricity by providing solar power panel and giving teachers allowance. This will help the teachers to enjoy their work as it is well known that teaching professional has been forgotten.
