Abstract

Motivation is a crucial instrument for the long-term growth of every educational system around the world. Teachers' welfare is hardly considered by different stakeholders in the Nigerian educational system. Thus, we compared the motivational level of Business studies teachers of public and private schools in Ibadan North-East local government, Oyo State. We used a survey design of a comparative approach. The target population comprised all business studies teachers of both public and private schools with 212 teachers. Using the purposive sampling technique, a total of 212 respondents were sampled of both schools and only 206 were used. Instruments tagged Business Studies Level of Motivation Questionnaire (BSLMQ) was used. Content, construct and face validity was done while internal consistent was established with the use of ordinal alpha (r=0.89). Data gathered were analysed using descriptive statistics while t-test was used to estimate for differences. We found out that the level of motivation of the business studies teachers is high based on the 89.3% (184) of respondents rating and only teachers' autonomy was found to be different based on school type at t= 0.556, df = 204, p>0.05. Based on the findings, we concluded that the motivation of the business studies teachers is high but not varies based on gender and school type. We recommended that public school business studies teachers should be provided with the freedom to make some decisions that affect their job with moderation by the supervisory bodies or individuals.
