Teachers' Perspectives on Transfer of Teachers from Secondary to Primary schools in Tanzania: The Case of Selected Transferred Teachers in Kigoma Municipality
Twalibu Habibu Baruani
Teachers' transfer is something common, but it should comply with all public service regulations for the aim of maintaining the teachers' performance as well as students' learning achievement. This study aimed to explore teachers' perspectives on transfer of teachers from secondary to primary schools in Tanzania. The study employed a qualitative approach whereby semi-structured interview was applied as an instrument of data collection from ten transferred teachers. The results showed that the transfer led to disruption to some teachers like leaving homes and families. Also, some teachers were demoralized whereby their teaching morale and commitments declined. The study concludes that teachers' satisfaction is one but an important factor for the development of teaching professionals.
