Daniel Kweku Anhwere


The purpose of the study was to examine the extent to which some situations impede teachers’ performance in Senior High Schools in Cape Coast Metropolis in the Central Region of Ghana. Specifically, these were issues on how lack of motivation of teachers and inadequate teaching and learning materials in the schools affect teaching. The study employed the descriptive survey design and covered schools in the Cape Coast Metropolis, comprising 145 males and 80 female teachers. The main instrument used was the questionnaire. Data were analyzed using means and standard deviations. The study revealed that teachers’ performances are impeded by poor conditions of service and lack of motivation besides irregular organization of in-service training programmes in the schools. Based on the findings, it was recommended that the government in collaboration with the Ghana Education Services (GES) should continue to provide adequate motivational packages for teachers and also organize regular workshops and training programmes such as research seminars for teachers.
