CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Recruiting, Retaining and Retraining Secondary School Teachers and Principals
in Sub-Saharan Africa is based on country studies in Ethiopia, Ghana, Guinea,
Madagascar, Tanzania and Uganda and an extensive literature review. In many
parts of Africa, the demand for secondary teachers substantially exceeds the
supply due to factors such as secondary teacher attrition, bottlenecks in the
teacher preparation system, and perceived unattractive conditions of service.
Few countries have strong policies, strategies, and programs for recruiting
able secondary leavers to secondary teaching. The paper suggests several
critical and promising areas for improvement in the quality of secondary
teachers through new approaches to recruitment; pre-service and in-service
teacher development; and improvements in the deployment, utilization,
compensation, and conditions of service for teachers.
