Abstract

The study investigated the impact of motivation on commitment for public secondary schools in Dar es Salaam using the case of Kinondoni District. The study was essentially qualitative with some aspects of quantitative approach and it involved 54 respondents. Out of the 54, 48 correspondents were teachers, 5 headmistresses and headmasters and one District Education Officer. Empirical data was collected through questionnaires, interviews and documentary reviews. The findings indicated that motivation to teachers in Dar es Salaam has been limited to money which is given to them in form of monthly salaries only. However, the findings showed that teachers were not motivated at all. The findings have also revealed that both financial and non-financial motivations are the main factors influencing commitment of teachers for public secondary schools in Dar es Salaam. The study further revealed that there is a great relationship between low work commitment of teachers in Dar es Salaam and the poor motivation they receive. From the above findings, the study recommends that in order to raise teachers’ commitment to work the Government of Tanzania, education stake holders, education policy makers and education officers should improve teachers’ salaries and other compensation benefits such as teachers’ housing allowances, health care for themselves and their families, and transport for teachers.
