It is a well-known fact that teachers are the cornerstone is any educational programme. No matter how well education policies are formulated planned and funded, without professionally qualified, dedicated and highly motivated teachers to execute the plan, the aims and objectives of that programme will fail woefully. It is very disheartening to see the teachers in the institutions of learning being treated with levity, contempt, abandonment and in fact as second class citizens. This seriously affects the standard of teaching and learning in the school and greatly threatens the very existence of education in the country. This paper examines the need for motivating the teachers and also suggests various ways of motivating in order to avert an imminent and total collapse of education in the country.
