Abstract

This study investigated the motivational strategies that would be adopted to re-engineer primary school teachers for sustainable development in Onitsha North Local Government Area. Three research questions and a hypothesis were formulated to guide the study. Descriptive survey research design was used. 300 primary school teachers (100 primary I, 100 primary II and 100 primary III) made up the sample for the study. Stratified random sampling was used in selecting the sample, with a 25-item self-made instrument to collect the data. Data was analyzed using mean, standard deviation and ANOVA. The findings revealed that the motivational strategies that would be
adopted to re-engineer primary school teachers for sustainable development
are mostly on attractive salary structure, providing opportunity for
professional development, staff recognition, parental support, participation
in decision making, teaching materials, supervision, funding of in-service
training, workshops and conferences, and issuing awards to good performing
teachers. Recommendations were made based on observations.
