Abstract

The purpose of this study is to investigate teachers’ role in curriculum implementation at primary and secondary school of Addis Ababa. Descriptive survey study was carried out at primary and secondary schools.64 department heads and 64 teachers were randomly selected in the schools. Mixed approach of quantitative and qualitative study was employed.  A sample of four primary schools and four secondary schools were selected at random from Addis Ababa. Through the use of questionnaire data were collected from members of the curriculum committee and teachers in the respective schools. The findings from the data revealed that the role of teachers in curriculum implementation is ineffective due to various reasons among which shortage of materials and students’ problems are worth noting. Lack of adequate curriculum materials have encountered teachers to bring about the required changes in the behavior of students through the provision of various activities and experiences. On the basis of the finding, it was recommended to combat the problem by providing the means and materials for schools. The school should develop the culture of organizing the efforts of teachers and students to generate fund and promote self-sufficiency in the long run. Further, deep investigation was recommended to screen out the essence of the problem from its root.
