The study aims at determining the factors which are influencing Retention of
Academic Staff in Tanzania Private Secondary Schools. The case study was in Dar
es Salaam region where by the sample of seven private secondary schools namely;
Green acres, St. Mary’s secondary school, Shaban Robert secondary school, AlMountazir secondary school, Anne-Marie academy school were taken.
The researcher used the case study design. The case study design allowed the
researcher to use questionnaire, interview and documentary review during data
collection. The sample size was 140 respondents. Statistical Package for Social
Science (SPSS) was used to analyze the collected data. Descriptive statistics
summarized the information from the collected data.
The investigation of this work unveils that there are very poor remunerations,
skimpy salaries, sparse transport allowances and scant fringe benefits, provided to
Teachers in private secondary schools. Moreover, the study reveals that some
fundamentally fundamental and basic human services such as medical services and
houses allowances are similarly and poorly given and also missing in these private
sectors. Consequently, the workers render very weak services to their stakeholders.
The likely total discouragement of services such as teachers working environment,
adequate teaching facilities and funding given to teachers, lead to a very meager
performance of students in national examinations.
The study thereafter, recommends that there should be encouragement to teachers of
private secondary school teachers of Dar es Salaam region, the existing motivations
such as interest free loans, fund given to teachers due to good performance of
students in the national examinations, leave salary payments should be maintained
and establish others which never existed like pension scheme, training and
development programs, award to best teachers.
