FACTORS INFLUENCING TEACHER ATTRITION AT PUBLIC SECONDARY SCHOOLS IN MBOONI EAST DISTRICT, KENYA

PDF version

Teacher attrition is a component of teacher turnover and in this study it means the permanent loss
of teachers from the teaching service. National statistics indicates that 10,000 teachers are lost
annually due to various reasons ranging from resignations, assignment of non-teaching job in
other ministries and other quit to join the private sector.  Currently more than 75,000 teachers are
needed in secondary schools to replace those lost and to cater for the increasing student
enrolments due to the Free Day Secondary Education  programme. The main objective in this
study was to investigate the factors that influenced teacher attrition at public secondary schools
in Mbooni East District. The study sought to determine the extent to which working conditions,
teachers’ education levels, remuneration packages for teachers, work load and levels of teachers’
discipline influenced teachers’ exit from the district. The study adopted the Equity Theory of
motivation since employees (teacher) retention depends on levels of motivation in their
workplace.
