Title: The effect of motivation on the performance of teachers in the Ghana Education Service [A case study of Obuasi Municipality]
Authors: Akubia, Lawrencia
Issue Date: 4-Jul-2011
Abstract: The purpose of the study is to ascertain the extent and/or adequacy of motivation within the Ghana Education Service (GES) and its effects on the delivery of teaching in the country; specifically evaluate the effectiveness of motivational techniques on the professional performance of teachers; determine how motivational tools used by management address the needs of employees; and evaluate how the different behaviors and attitudes of management demotivate employee. The Obuasi Municipality of the GES was used as a case study. Using the non-probability sampling method of random sampling, specifically, the purposive sampling, a sample size of one hundred (100), comprising twenty-five (25) non-teaching staff and seventy-five (75) teaching staff of the target population (5,000) responded to the administered questionnaire. The study showed that both teaching and non-teaching staffs of the Obuasi Municipality of the GES are working under very deplorable conditions, lacking basic amenities for effective teaching and lack of proper accommodation among many; thereby de-motivating them hence resulting in the poor performance of pupils in both BECE and WASSCE examinations in recent times. Therefore, it is recommended all the requisite logistics and modern laboratories and workshops for basic teachings in Basic and High schools in contemporary times should be provided, if government expects to have good results from the BECE and WASSCE examinations. Finally, proper and decent accommodation should be provided for personnel in the rural areas and also, extra allowances should be given to those ready to accept postings to those areas.
