This project focuses on the quality of teachers toward student academic performance in secondary schools. Education and its benefits can never be overemphasized at the global phenomena as the root of economic, industrial, political, scientific and technological, and even religious development. All aspects of development are centered on education (Pedretti, E. (2000). Education is one of the vital instruments for development in any nation. Every educational system at every level depends heavily on teachers for the execution of its programmes. Teachers are highly essential for successful operation of the educational system and important tools for educational development (Williamson, S. (2000). Teachers at all levels of education play the decisive role in pivoting the growth and direction of education. It is an acceptable fact that teacher is the most important cog in the educational machine and that teachers are highly instrumental to the success of any educational programme embarked upon by any government. This is because apart from being at the implementation level of any educational policy, the realization of these programmes also depends greatly on the teacher’s dedication and commitment to their work (Adeniji, I.A 1999).
