Ben, Camilus Bassey
World Journal of Education, v4 n4 p12-19 2014
This research study carried out to investigate the influence of financial incentive initiatives on agricultural teachers' work attitude in Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria. One hypothesis was formulated to guide the study. Ex-post facto research design was adopted for the study. A total sample of 150 agricultural science teachers and 150 students drawn from public secondary schools in the state were involved in the study. The financial Incentive Initiative Opinion Inventory (FIIOI) and Agricultural Teachers' Work Disposition (ATWD) questionnaires developed by the researcher were the instruments used for data collection. The data collected were statistically analyzed using the mean and independent t-test at 0.05 level of significance. The finding of the study indicated others, which financial incentive initiatives associated with adequate salary, and prompt payment, significantly influenced agricultural science teachers' work attitude. Based on these finding, it was recommended among others that the government should provide financial incentives to agricultural science teachers by paying their salaries adequately and promptly. This will motivate them towards improved work attitude.
