Influence of Compensation and Supervision on Private Basic School Teachers Work Performance in Ashaiman Municipality
Abbdul-Jaleel Saani

This study investigated the influence of compensation and teacher supervision on teacher work performance. A total of 103 randomly selected private basic school heads and teachers in the Ashaiman community of Tema, Ghana completed the questionnaire. Data for the study were analysed using multiple regression analysis. It was found out that compensation and teacher supervision relate positively to teacher work performance; however, the two variables do not directly predict work performance. They do so only if teachers are satisfied with the forms of compensation available to them. It is therefore recommended that management of private basic schools should design attractive compensation packages for their teachers. They should also use appropriate supervision strategies in their schools, as this increases teacher work performance. If teacher supervision goes pari passu with levels of compensation packages offered, the teachers will have satisfaction with their job, and they will increase their effort in their work.
