CHAPTER ONE

1.0       INTRODUCTION

Every organisation whether public or private often have designed goals and objectives aimed to realize. For every goal and objective to be realized, there has to be motivational mechanisms expected to enhance the productivity for desirable result. The negative effect on the morale of teachers in addition to a lack of sense of job security, and multiple factors diminishing teacher motivation which include low salaries, lack of support from administration, increment of salaries, giving of awards, granting loans to staff, frequent training of staff to educative workshop, staff consultative forum to mention but a few.

Teachers’ have proven to be the primary variable affecting students performance (Kane, Rockoff & Staiger, 2006). The No child left Behind Act of 2008 (NCLB) made states and local districts accountable for all actions that produce low academic performance. The level of teacher engagement has strong implication not only for professional growth and the quality of instruction but also for students’ academic achievement. When teachers perform and carry out their specific job roles and duties, students produce and achieve positive results (Tucker etal; 2005). Low teacher morale and poor motivation has become a major problem that has affected the performance of senior secondary school students especially in Kaduna South Local Government.

1.1    BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

The academic performance of our students are deteriorating on daily basis. This is evident in the massive failure of students in WAEC, NECO and JAMB Examinations. Also the prolification of exam malpractices at all stages and the production of secondary school graduates who cannot speak or write simple correct English. These problems are traced to poor motivation of teachers which has culminated to poor performance of students which is seen in frequent absenteeism of students from class, truancy and lack of enthusiasm to class activities and critical thinking. According to Dr. Ernest W. Brewer, a professor says “when college students are not motivated, a common outcome is a lost desire to attend class, followed by frequent absence and plummeting grades”. The role of motivation in enhancing the productivity of employee cannot be over emphasized. However, it’s obvious that questions of motivation in Nigeria’s context is easier pronounced than actually done. Cases of protest, demonstrations and strikes have been the order of the day as a result failure by government to imbibe the ethics of motivation in their pattern of operation. Recently, there was strike in most states of the federation because of poor remunerating of teachers on the proposed minimum wage. This research work is obvious in other to proffer ways of improving the academic performance of senior secondary school students in Kaduna south local government by improving motivation of teachers in improved salary structure, prompt payment teachers’ salaries, in-service programmes for teachers, conducive teaching environment and provision of all teaching materials needed by the teachers.
