This can be achieved through offering incentives to teachers and rewarding teacher's whose students perform better in a subject. Not only that, non-monetary incentive should also be considered like recognition, offering gift to teachers and appreciation from the head teacher. Pension packages of teachers should be improved in terms of the lump sum and monthly allowance. This will give teachers a sense of security in their old age and as a result they will remain focus and committed to their work.
