CHAPTER ONE 1.0 INTRODUCTION There seems to be controversy as to what really motivates a teacher. Different teachers tend to have preference for different motivational factors and thereby perceive them as being motivational to their performance. This is because we all differ in our interests and understanding and therefore react differently on different aspects. While one teacher prefers being given a house, another one prefers recognition and appreciation instead, thus making it difficult to understand what really motivates a teacher to perform well (Wandira). This study looked at the issue of payment of allowances, prov1s10n of housing facilities, involvement in decision making, and appreciation of the teachers work as motivational factors that affect teacher's performance. In his budget speech of 2002/2003, the minister of planning and economic development indicated that government was providing l 7bn to implement pay reform strategy and therefore further significant salary for critical managers and professionals. Therefore raising a question to what will really motivate the teacher for better performance. Because of the difficulty to understand what motivates the teachers, the study therefore thought to find out how teachers perceived the above motivational factors in affecting their performance. There was a need to establish whether there is a difference in perception in relation to gender, level of education or being attached to a day or boarding school.
