Following the implementation of free primary education, we expect all learners to be in school but to the contrary there is very high rate of school drop out, truancy of learners and school unrest. Therefore, these learners are not benefiting from FPE. The study is meant to determine how effective teachers are in managing learners with behaviour problems in primary schools. The researcher used descriptive survey design to gather data in to primary school in Matete zone in Lugari district. The researcher used random sampling method to pick the respondents in each school. Data was analyzed and came up with the following findings. That teachers did not employ appropriate classroom management strategies to manage behaviour problems. Also teachers did not employ appropriate strategies in programme instructions to carter for learners with behaviour problems that are assisted with academic difficulties.

This kind of approach had the following implications. Poor academic performance in school.
