Abstract

This study aims to investigate the effect of teachers’ morale in improving academic performance of secondary schools. This end was fulfilled by three objectives namely:to explore the existing status of teachers morale in secondary schools, to assess the motives of the existing status of teachers morale in secondary schools, and to examine the relationship between teachers’ morale and schools academic performance. This study was guided by motivation and leadership theories. The study applied quantitative and qualitative research approaches and cross sectional research design.The data were collected through questionnaires and interview from 77 respondents. The findings revealed that the existing status of teachers’ morale in secondary schools was below the expected standard. Majority of teachers had bad feelings about their work. The motives behind the learned status of the teachers’ morale were related to salary, leadership, conducive environment for teaching and learning including enough teaching and learning materials. Generally, the findings revealed strong positive relationship between teachers’ morale and schools’ academic performance. However,further studies on the same topic are crucial due to the ever changing global environment, policies and drastic changes in managing secondary education in Tanzania. Major improvements are also expected basing on the current national leader’s slogan of “HAPA KAZI TU’’ and the free education policy.
