ABSTRACT Teacher motivation has become an important issue given their responsibility to impart knowledge and skills to learners. Consequently, this report is a study carried out in Baitambogi’ve sub-county, in Mayaige district which aimed at studying the relationship between teacher motivation and academic performance ofpupils in Universal Primary Education (UPE) Schools. Teacher motivation has been seen to be at its lowest in Baitambogwe sub-county, this stemming from a number of variables rangingfrom personal variables like age, gender, marital status etc. Situational / organizational variables like salary(pay), supervision, working conditions, company policy, recognition etc. These have greatly contributed to the demonizalion ofteachers and hence a dramatic fall in academic performance ofpupils in UPE schools. Wafiila (199]) also suggests that among the factors that demean the teaching profession in African countries are poor buildings in which teachers operate. Herman (1999), cited various frictors that demotivates workers among which include low salaries, lack of fringe benefIts, poor working conditions. In order to improve teacher motivation and performance at work, the study reco~nmended increase in the salary ofprimary teachers to match the increased cost of living, provision of accommodation to teachers, strengthening of supervision as well as insti/tiling awards for good performance, among others Research findings have found out that the ma/or demotivators cited by Herman(]999,) are predominantly embraced in most UPE schools in Uganda and hence the need to investigate the case of Baitambogwe sub-county in Mayuge District.
