Education is about teaching and learning. This is the case at school level. At the center of learning are pupils. The effectiveness of education is measured in terms of the amount of learning acquired by the pupils. In any society children go to school to acquire academic skills. At primary school level, children go to school to learn reading, writing and mathematics. At secondary level children go to school to acquire academic skills based on various subjects broadly categorized as mathematics and science, arts and humanities, practical and commercial subjects. To acquire these skills pupils need teachers and schools. It is against this background that a study on secondary teacher effectiveness in Zimbabwe was undertaken.
