CHAPTER ONE 1.0 Introduction This chapter looks at the background to the study, statement of the problem, major aim of the study, specific objectives, research questions, hypotheses, scope, significance and justification of the study. 1.1 Back ground to the study Johns(2007), defines absenteeism as failing to report for scheduled work. According to Gorff, etal, (1990), absenteeism refers to scheduled or unscheduled employee absences from workplace. The definition of absenteeism in this study is going to be looked at as the habit of not being at school when you should be, especially with out a good reason. Absenteeism is a violation of a social obligation of missing work at a particular time. Teachers’ absenteeism in Uganda like else where seems to be increasing in many schools and this problem has become the most pressing issue in the country today. A developing survey by international development consultants in 2007, of 401 schools in Uganda showed a gradual decline in teachers absenteeism from 25% in 2001 to 21% in 2005- 2006. However a new report by the Dutch development organization (SNV) indicated that the problem is so serious to the extent that the teachers’ absenteeism in Uganda is ranked the highest in the world as 26% and above.
