The study aimed at investigating the influence of motivation on teacherís performance in government-aided secondary schools in Sironko District and it was guided by the following objectives; to find out the influence of in-service training on teacherís performance in public secondary schools in Sironko District, to determine how working conditions affect teachers performance in public secondary schools in Sironko District, to examine how promotion influences teachers performance in public secondary schools in Sironko District.
The study used the cross sectional design based on both qualitative and quantitative research approaches. This was because it would enable the researcher to generate quick self-reports from the participants under the study. The findings of the study were; the most respondents agreed with the statement that some teachers in government-aided secondary teachers are incompetent due to their inadequate training which gave a reason that students at times fail because teachers are not doing their part as required for instance some teachers are under qualified to teach where majority go in for teaching for survival, majority agreed that, provision of basic facilities in classrooms, adequate equipment, learning materials and supplies and maintenance of school buildings would affect their performance, most of them agreed that keeping a teacher in one position for long without any promotion makes him or her not to enjoy his or her work.
The study recommends that the research was conducted on a small area based on only two government-aided secondary schools in Sironko and therefore, wider research with a bigger sample size should be conducted in Sironko District.
