LEVEL OF TEACHERS’ EFFICIENCY IN WORK PERFORMANCE IN PUBLIC SECONDARY SCHOOLS IN WAJIR- NORTH DISTRICT- KENYA.

PDF version

Teachers play a vital role in the implementation of the education plans at school level.
This role is sometimes challenged by the level of teachers’ efficiency in work
performance where the educational resources are scarce. Teachers face challenges of
the optimal use of the available resources in the production of maximum output.
The purpose of the study was to  determine  teachers’ efficiency  level  in the work
performance in public secondary schools in Wajir north district, Kenya. The study was
guided by five  research objectives based on  teachers’ level of  lesson preparation,
utilization of the teaching-learning time, classroom management strategies, evaluation
strategies on students and learner-centered strategies as monitoring tools for efficiency
in the provision of education in public secondary schools in Wajir north district.
The study used descriptive statistics in which questionnaires, classroom observation
schedule, document analysis and check list were used as data collection instruments.
The target population was all teachers, head teachers and students in three public
secondary schools in Wajir north district. The study targeted 3 head teachers, 30
teachers and 600 students from all head teachers and teachers were purposively
sampled as they were few and key informants to the study.  234 students were
randomly selected. Convenient sampling was used in classroom observation
schedules. The data collected were analyzed using both descriptive statistics
(frequency distribution tables, bar graphs, pie charts, frequency  counts and
percentages).
Research findings  indicate that  teachers  to large extent prepared for lessons and
utilized  the teaching-learning time well  as monitoring tools for efficiency in the
provision of education in public secondary schools in Wajir north district. The study
also established  that teacher  evaluation strategies on students  and classroom
management strategies as inputs in the teaching-learning process were generally good
as monitoring tools for efficiency in the provision of education in public secondary
schools in Wajir north district. The study further established that  learner-centered
teaching-learning strategies were not utilized by most of teachers as a monitoring tool
for efficiency in the provision of education in public secondary schools in Wajir north
district.  The study therefore recommends proper planning and monitoring of the
teaching learning process in order to realize the set educational goals and objectives.
The study further recommends proper planning of education to include in-service
programmes for teachers to improve their teaching skills to enhance their efficiency in
work performance.
