EFFECT OF TEACHER RETENTION ON SECONDARY SCHOOL ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE

CHAPTER ONE

1.0 INTRODUCTION

1.1 Background of the Study

Recruiting and retaining teachers is a worldwide issues for schools in private and public schools as teaching is the profession from which other professionals and careers develop.  However, low salaries, geographical locations and working environment make it difficult to retain qualified teaching staff (Beesley, 2008).

Coob (2008) argued that despite the public lack of knowledge regarding teacher recruitment and retention data, the media continues its claims that many teaching prospects enter private industry because most of public schools do not have sufficient monetary, human or materials resources. This study aims to quantify and characterize the differences in retaining teachers between private and public schools.

In Tanzania, the process of recruiting teachers started soon after independence in 1961. The matter was associated with ineffective system of education which was inherited from the colonial education. Nyerere (1967) noted that education which was provided during colonialism was not intended to promote the welfare of the Africans and it was irrelevant, instead it was rather intended to be the mechanism of changing social attitudes and values of the indigenous people in order to fit their requirements. Also colonial education aimed at preparing Tanzanians as cheap labor, to perform duties such as clerical and subordinates of their officers (Mushi, 2009).  Nyerere went further by arguing that in order to get rid from three enemies namely poverty, ignorance and diseases, people should be given relevant education which goes hand in hand with their environment.  Hence nationalization of all private schools into the hand of the government was done. The government introduced universal primary educations (UPE) in 1973 where by people were taught reading, arithmetic and writing. Following this, the primary school leavers were trained and employed as literacy instructors without regarding their quality of education. (Mushi, 2009). There are two ways of recruiting and retaining teachers throughout the world. Lewin (2000), argued that practices of teacher recruitment in varying circumstances were organized into two main systems; market system and or directly controlled by central government. This study is aimed to explore the retention strategies which are being used by private and government schools. Despite the fact that government recruits teachers through the direct system from the colleges and universities yearly unlike privately owned schools which use market system the rate of teacher turnover is high in government schools.

Statement of the Problem

Babirye (2005) in her study on teacher turnover and performance of private secondary schools in Dar es Salaam Tanzania argued that the rapid expansion of the private sector led to an increase in teacher turnover especially in public sector and there is high competition in the private sector for the same pool of teachers as each school tries to attract the best qualified teachers so as to survive in the expanding sector.
