ABSTRACT The study was to establish the effects of teacher quality and learners' achievement in mathematics in Kikumini primary school in Nzaui district, eastern province of Kenya and the research was guided by the following objectives; to determine if teachers' motivation affects academic performance of students in mathematics in Kikumini primary school, determine if teacher qualification affects academic achievement of students in mathematics in Kikumini primary school, determine if facilities at school affects academic performance of students in mathematics in Kikumini primary school. The findings from the study indicated that motivation affects teachers performance, schools with motivated teachers performed better than those that did not motivate teachers, teachers who are not qualified do not teach well because they are not trained to teach which leads to poor performance of pupils, schools that did not have enough learning and teaching materials did not perform well compared to those with enough learning and teaching. The ways to reduce absenteeism included improving the competence of teachers, improve school facilities, improve educator -learner relationship, introduce regular 'spot checks' for specific lesson truancy, rewards for pupils or classes with regular attendance, and Penalize students who are persistently late. The research concluded that there was there is need to stop absenteeism decreases performance and therefore deserves attention.
